Publisher's Summary

You probably have heard of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. But how much do you really know about it?

The ancient world was home to some of the greatest civilizations in history. The Egyptians, the Greeks, the Babylonians, and others wanted to leave their mark on history so others would remember their greatness. And what better way to explore that greatness than to examine some of the greatest wonders the world has ever known?

Most people can list a few of the wonders of the top of their head. But few know that the Hanging Gardens of Babylon might never have existed or that the remains of the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus were used by the Knights Hospitaller.

This audiobook uncovers the history behind the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World in easy-to-understand language. Your eyes will be open to a new side of history after listening to this introductory guide!

In this audiobook, you will learn the answers to the following questions:

  • How many of the wonders are still around today?
  • Were all of these wonders actually real, or are they more mythical in nature?
  • Why were these wonders built in the first place?
  • What happened to them? Did they fall apart over time, or did something catastrophic happen?
  • How big do historians think these wonders were?
  • And so much more!
