Chinese archaeologists have discovered a section of the Great Wall straddling the Mongolian border that is the northernmost remnant of the landmark yet found, state media reported on Wednesday.

The remnants of the wall, found in the Bayannur district of China's Inner Mongolia region, measures 2,3m wide and about 1,15m high, the Beijing News reported.

Built 2 100 years ago during the Han dynasty, the section also would likely be one of the oldest sections of the wall, which was begun in the reign of the emperor Qin Shi Huang, which began in 221 BC

The wall, constructed of stones, was found by a joint team headed by the People's University's School of History, the paper said. No other details were provided.
