The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World Reviews

"The chapters in this book describe the seven wonders of the ancient world - the Great Pyramids at Giza, the Hanging Gardens at Babylon, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesos, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes and the Pharos (Lighthouse) at Alexandria. Their history, location, purpose, building and description are provided along with many illustrations and drawings. The last chapter gives a list of other monuments which could be considered wonders, and tells why the actual seven wonders of the ancient world were chosen. Recommended reading for all interested in history."
-"Frankie's Bibliography
"The essays on each Wonder are authoritative and readable. If you are interested in the canonical seven, this is the book for you."
-"Archaeology, Jan/Feb 2000
