by Paul Jordan, Seven Wonders Of The Ancient World Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Seven Wonders Of The Ancient World book, The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and all sorts of mysteries attaching to them, have intrigued people since the second century BCE. Why were these particular creations chosen and when? And why did the ancients want to draw up such a list in the first place? What were the technical and cultural factors involved in the creation and listing of the Wonders? The Seven Wonders still rival many of the phenomenal products of both nature and mankind in their size, majesty, and beauty. Six of them no longer stand, having been destroyed by natural disaster or by human intervention. From the Pyramids at Giza to the Colossus of Rhodes, from the Hanging Gardens of Babylon to the Lighthouse of Alexandria, from the Temple of Ephesus to the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus and the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World have never ceased to fascinate down the ages.

The Seven Wonders Of The World

by Theodore Alois Buckley, The Seven Wonders Of The World Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Seven Wonders Of The World book, Detailing each of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, Theodore Alois Buckley's The Seven Wonders of the World and Their Associations provides particularly intricate information about the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon are regarded as the most legendary of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. While some historians believe the Gardens never actually existed, others believe they were built in the ancient city-state of Babylon near present-day Babil province in Iraq. Purportedly constructed by King Nebuchadnezzar II between 605 and 562 BC, the Gardens were created as a gift to his wife, Amytis of Media, who often longed for the sight and smell of native plants from her homeland. Ancient writers describe the Gardens as consisting of intricate systems of terraces and trellises that would hold an abundance of plants. Historians believe these terraces were the reason the Gardens were referred to as "hanging," as it would appear plants were suspended in midair or over rooftops. Historians also believe that the Gardens would have required servants to use a minimum of about 8,200 gallons (37,000 liters) of water each day to irrigate the greenery. The Hanging Gardens are thought to have been destroyed by earthquakes around the second century BC. And while this Wonder has been written about by several Greek and Roman historians, no definitive archaeological evidence concerning the whereabouts of the legendary gardens has been found.

The Seven Wonders Of The Ancient World

by Edgar James Banks, The Seven Wonders Of The Ancient World Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Seven Wonders Of The Ancient World book, Containing information and history about each of the seven Ancient Wonders, this volume features particularly detailed stories about the Lighthouse of Alexandria. For centuries, the Lighthouse of Alexandria was the tallest man-made structure on the planet. Measuring in at about 420 feet (128 meters), the edifice was certainly worthy of a spot on the list of Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Built sometime between 280 and 247 BC, the lighthouse was placed on the island of Pharos in Alexandria, Egypt. Pharos was a small island near the key port city of Alexandria. Legend mentioned that the people of the island were vicious pillagers who would destroy any ships that wrecked off its coast. Fearful of this problem, Ptolemy I had the lighthouse built to guide mariners sailing into port at night. The tower was constructed from colored stones held together by molten lead. Statues of Triton, the messenger of the Big Sea, were placed on each of the four corners of its base. Additionally, a statue of Poseidon, the god of the Sea, was positioned at the top of the lighthouse. Like each of the Ancient Wonders (aside from the Great Pyramid of Giza), the Lighthouse of Alexandria was destroyed. Badly damaged by earthquakes in 956, 1303 and 1323, the structure continued to wash away into the ocean until the top of the tower was swallowed completely in 1480. Today, historians and archaeologists continue to search the bottom of the ocean and the island of Pharos for pieces of the ancient structure. Mentions of the Wonder can be found in Julius Caesar's war accounts and even in CGI representations in recent films like Asterix & Obelix and Agora. While the lighthouse has been gone for over 500 years, it continues to mystify scholars and fascinate those who hear its story.

Where Were The Seven Wonders Of The Ancient World

by Yona Z. McDonough, Where Were The Seven Wonders Of The Ancient World Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Where Were The Seven Wonders Of The Ancient World book, Explore the most amazing wonders of the ancient world! More than 2,000 years ago, travelers wrote about the incredible sights they saw while on their journeys. They told tales of hanging gardens that were built for a Babylonian queen, and a colossal statue that guided ships through the harbor of Rhodes in Greece. These writers compiled a list of the very best of these sights that are now known as the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Author Yona Zeldis McDonough takes the readers on a trip to the Lighthouse of Alexandria and the Great Pyramids in Egypt (the only Wonder still standing), the Statue of Zeus at Olympia and the Colossus of Rhodes in ancient Greece, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, and the Temple of Artemis, detailing the creativity and skill that these early civilizations possessed.
