Bentley Diana. The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World
Oxford University Press, 2001. — 38 p.
A delightful illustrated introduction to the greatest achievements of the ancient world and published in cooperation with the British Museum, The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World is a fascinating look at the ancient technological marvels that continue to captivate children and adults today.
Each chapter focuses on a specific monument and contains a short history of the civilization that built it; how the monument was likely used; a description of its structure; how it has inspired great structures of our own age (e.g., I. M. Pei's Louvre pyramid); how the building was likely engineered; and its known or theorized fate. Artifacts and tools, period drawings and paintings, contemporary plans, and photographs of archaeologists at work round out this remarkable look at the most splendid and ambitious accomplishments from the greatest civilizations of the ancient world, which include:
Pyramids at Giza in Egypt
Statue of Zeus at Olympia in Greece
Hanging Gardens of Babylon in Babylonia/Mesopotamia
Temple of Artemis at Ephesus in Greece
Mausoleum of Halicarnassus in Persia
Colossus of Rhodes in Greece
Lighthouse at Alexandria (Greece/Egypt)
