The Seven Wonders of the World
The seven wonders of the ancient world are seven man-made structures around the rim of the Mediterranean Sea that have been widely considered to be extraordinary feats of human engineering and design. While the commonly-accepted list of wonders focuses on the Mediterranean area, there are certainly many other wonderful and extraordinary structures from other parts of the world that the writers of this list were likely not familiar with. Some wonders are made for glory or representing their cultures.
This book discusses the classical seven wonders of the ancient world, including their construction, life, and destruction.
