SEVEN WONDERS OF THE ANCIENT WORLD
The notion of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World can be traced back to the fifth century B.C. These creations rivaled many created by nature in their size, majesty, and beauty. Six of the seven wonders no longer stand, having been destroyed by natural disaster or by humans.
The idea of the list dates to the fifth century B.C. when Greek historian Herodotus marvelled about some of the Wonders. Although it has been argued that other ancient wonders of comparable regard—such as the Great Wall of China, Machu Picchu in Peru, and the Aztec Temple in Tenochtitlan in Mexico—should have been included, these may not have been known about by the Greeks who first proposed Wonders for the list.
The Pyramids of Giza. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon. The Colossus of Rhodes. Magnificent and mysterious, the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World have captivated explorers for centuries. Narrated by Leonard Nimoy, ANCIENT MYSTERIES ventures into the world of vanished empires, uncovering the secrets surrounding the legendary list.
Spectacular monuments from antiquity are still found on five of the earth's continents, yet these seven rise above the rest. Why were these particular structures chosen? And why seven-what magic lies hidden within this number? Learn about the register's probable origins and the three features it seemed to promote and discover the legends and mythical powers that evolved around each of the fabled monuments.
