The Qin Dynasty (221–206 BC) reunited China and laid the foundation for 21 centuries of imperial rule. Its great building projects and achievements were overshadowed by enormous cultural destruction and loss of life.

During the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC), men sentenced to castration were turned into eunuch slaves and forced to work on state projects including the Great Wall of China and the Terracotta Army.
