This fascinating and well-illustrated exploration, now republished, uses archaeological and documentary evidence to reconstruct each of the seven wonders of the ancient world in turn. Beginning with the Olympian statue of Zeus and continuing eastwards around the Mediterranean to the pyramids, they investigate the physical and symbolic remains of these works, each of which was originally created to represent an ideal.
