The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World

Last week's General Knowledge Challenge was about the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

This Tuesday we shared the answers in class.

During the classical antiquity, the Greeks conquered much of the Eastern Mediterranean. When the Greeks travelled along the Mediterranean, they discovered landmarks and wonders, and many writers began to make lists of what had to be seen by travelers: these were the "Wonders". Of the seven original Wonders, only one, the Great Pyramid of Giza, remains standing. The list that we know today was written by a Greek engineer from the city of Byzantium who lived in Egypt, called Philo of Byzantium.
The Great Pyramid of Giza is the
only one of the Seven Wonders
that is still standing.
                                                                             The Seven Wonders are:
