From 11th to 13th centuries on, under a specific historical migration background and a special natural environment, Tulous evolved from the traditional art of earthen houses. Fujian Tulou witnessed the whole process of this historical period. From the late Warring States period to the early Western Han period, the technology of rammed earth for construction became relatively mature in Fujian. In the Song, Yuan and Ming dynasties (11th to 14th centuries), the civilian residential buildings were built paying special attention to military defensive functions because of war flames and invasion of pirates in the coastal areas.

Great Britain has relied on mastery of the oceans for her greatness. From the days of empire in the 18th and 19th centuries, to the days of fighting for survival during the brutal conflicts of the 20th century, the sailors of the British Isles left the ports of England determined to serve their country. Hundreds of thousands of these souls would never return to their homeland.
