First it was Four Corners, Now It's the Great Wall

BBC NEWS | World | Asia-Pacific | Great Wall of China 'even longer': "The Great Wall of China is even greater than previously thought, according to the first detailed survey to establish the length of the ancient barricade.

A two-year government mapping study found that the wall spans 8,850km (5,500 miles) - until now, the length was commonly put at about 5,000km."
