Inside each Chinese city in the past, all had their own unique
personalities. But to protect each of these cities, all of the Chinese cities were
surrounded by strong, high walls. Inside those protective walls were wealthy houses which
were made of wood and had tiles which were either painted with paint or a gloss. These
types of houses all had their own walls to protect them.
