11 Read the text. How did Chinese soldiers warn
each other of danger? (2 marks)
Smoke signals are one of the oldest forms of
communication. In ancient China, soldiers on the
Great Wall warned each other about approaching
danger by sending smoke signals from the towers
along the wall. In this way, they could transmit a
message to someone as far away as 750 kilometres
in just a few hours. Around 150 BC, a Greek
historian called Polybius invented a system of
alphabetical smoke. He converted the Greek
alphabet into number signals and created a system
of sending messages. This idea, known as the
‘Polybius Square’, has been very important in the
development of modern cryptography, a method of
communicating secretly through written messages.
The Native Americans also communicated with
smoke signals. Each tribe had its own system. A
signaller started a fire of grass on a high place. If
the smoke came from halfway up a hill, this meant
all was well, but from the top of the hill it meant
danger. In some situations people still use smoke
signals to transmit news, gather people to a
common area or signal danger. Many years ago,
the Aborigines of Australia sent up smoke signals
before they entered a new place.
Nowadays, the American Boy Scouts organization
still use smoke signals when they go on camping
trips: they use three puffs of smoke to communicate
if someone is in danger. All scouts should learn the
code to prevent any misunderstanding.
