You are a poor peasant boy who works with your father to help support your family. You are living in the third century BC under the ruler Qin. He has declared himself the Emperor of China. Emperor Qin is not the most pleasant person. Qin expected total loyalty to the state and this is confusing to you because you know that you are supposed to be loyal to your family first. The Emperor has many unfair laws. Unfortunately, you break one of those laws and are given the punishment of hard labor. Your sentence to working on building the Great Wall of China, to keep out demons and keep the Emperor safe. This is hard work in the scorching heat of the summer and the bitter cold in the mountains. If it were up to you, You Wouldn't Want to Work on the Great Wall of China.
