Wonders of the World:
The seven wonders of the ancient world have been celebrated by scholars, writers, and artists since 200 B.C. These wonders of architecture, like Egypt's pyramids, were monuments of human achievement, built by Mediterranean and Middle Eastern empires with little more than simple tools and manual labor. Today, all but one of these ancient wonders have vanished - the Great Pyramids of Giza. Since 2000 A.D., a new list of contemporary wonders of the world was created - one focusing on natural wonders, and another on 'new' man-made structures.
