Seven Wonders Of The Ancient World
They were named more than 2,000 years ago as the most magnificent architectural achievements of their time. Only one remains, and ironically, it is the oldest: the Great Pyramid of Giza, built around 2560 B.C. Hear the true story behind this and the other six “wonders:” the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes and the Lighthouse at Alexandria. Learn about the original purpose of each, and about those who built them. Animated sequences reveal how each structure was constructed and destroyed. Review from Video Rating Guide Vol. 2 No. 1: This is an excellent video..a lot of interesting historical information is included..each (wonder) could be viewed independently of the others if necessary. The photography and sound are first rate. This is a well-made video with lots of good information. Four stars. Review from Library Journal: Live action shots are combined with animation to give a realistic idea..the narration is clear and concise..an excellent addition to most libraries.
