A companion to the major television series, The Seven Wonders of the World tells the stories of the making and unmaking of such ancient marvels as the Egyptian Pyramids, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, and the Colossus of Rhodes. Drawing on history and archaeology, and joining ancient writings to remnant stones and landscapes, the authors have accurately reconstructed each of the original wonders for the modern viewer. Color photos.
