The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World symbolize all that was magnificent and mysterious in the pre-Christian West, yet today many people would have difficulty in naming them. Most of these grand monuments of bronze and marble, gold and ivory, earth, fire and water cannot be visited today except in the mind's eye; either they lie in ruins or they have vanished in the sands of time. Includes the stories of the travellers and scholars who came in contact with these seven ancient wonders, the stories of the wonders themselves, and the histories of their making and breaking. It traces the archaeological hunt to find the Seven Wonders, from the earliest digs to the latest discoveries of current excavations. It also includes fresh translations of the accounts of those who sailed the seas and rivers of the ancient world to walk among these seven fabled monuments and wonder at them. The authors, both archaeologists create images of these great wonders. Fine.   Price: $40.00
