One of the tallest buildings for many centuries at somewhere estimated closely to 393 and 450 ft.
Was badly damaged in three earthquakes between 956 and 1323, until it became an abandoned ruin. Stonehenge Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England, about 2 miles west of Amesbury and 8 miles north of Salisbury. One of the most famous sites in the world, Stonehenge is the remains of a ring of standing stones set within the earth. It is in the middle of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds. Mausoleum at Halicarnassuss A tomb built between 353 and 350 BC at Halicarnassus (present Bodrum, Turkey) for Mausolus, a satrap in the Persian Empire.
The finished structure of the mausoleum was considered to be such an aesthetic triumph that Antipater of Sidon identified it as one of his Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The Great Pyramids of Giza The Colossus of Rhodes was a statue of the Greek Titan Helios, erected in the city of Rhodes on the Greek island of Rhodes by Chares of Lindos between 292 and 280 BC. It was constructed to celebrate Rhodes' victory over the ruler of Cyprus, Antigonus I Monophthalmus, whose son unsuccessfully besieged Rhodes in 305 BC. Before its destruction in the earthquake of 226 BC, the Colossus of Rhodes stood over 30 meters high, making it one of the tallest statues of the ancient world. The main one, also called Khufu's Pyramid is comprised of 2,300,000 blocks of stone, each weighing 2 1/2 tons a piece. Only ancient wonder that still stands. Temple of Artemis Temple of Zeus The Colossus of Rhodes The Temple of Artemis was located in Ephesus, in modern-day Turkey. It's original construction dates back to the Bronze Age, but nobody knows who its original constructor was. It was rebuilt 3 times before it's final destruction in 401. It was first destroyed by a flood in the 7th century B.C, then a man named Herostratus burned it down because he was seeking fame and glory in 356 B.C, after which the rebuilt temple stood for about 600 years, but finally it was destroyed in a raid by the Goths in 261 A.D. It was not rediscovered until 1869. The 7 Ancient Wonders of the World
