Two thousand five hundred years ago, a Greek scribe wrote out a spectacular list of wonders that still haunts us today. Renowned author and archaeologist, John Romer, sets out on a riveting journey to bring the grandeur, majesty and sheer scale of these ancient wonders to life.

THE GREAT PYRAMID OF GIZA 2584 BC Discover the enduring fascination of the only surviving Wonder, the Great Pyramid of Giza, constructed over a twenty year period for the Pharaoh Khufu.

THE HANGING GARDENS OF BABYLON 605 BC The Hanging Gardens of Babylon were rumoured to be part of the palace of Nebuchadnezzar. Today, scientists believe that the exotic gardens were actually more fable than fact.

THE TEMPLE OF ARTEMIS 550 BC The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, in modern-day Turkey, was built to honour the mother goddess. She was a powerful force and her temple was one of the holiest shrines in Alexander the Great’s world.

THE STATUE OF ZEUS 466 BC A mammoth figure of ivory and gold, the Statue of Zeus ruled over the Olympic Games and projected a new vision of the human form into the popular consciousness.

THE MAUSOLEUM OF HALICARNASSUS 351 BC Considered one of the greatest tombs ever created, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus reached one hundred and thirty-five feet and was an unparalled testament to the power of the era.

THE COLOSSUS OF RHODES 292 BC The Colossus of Rhodes was a huge bronze statue of the Greek god Helios. At over one hundred feet, it stood guard over the Greek island of Rhodes.

THE PHAROS OF ALEXANDRIA 280 BC At over three hundred feet, the Pharos of Alexandria was the tallest structure of its time and served as a lighthouse with reflective mirrors at the top.
