The idea of the Seven Wonders of the World is well-known, but how many of us could name all seven of them? And do they even exist? Now available in paperback, Clayton and Price set the record straight with an attractive portrayal of each wonder in the context in which it was built. For the first time, the facts and background are brought together to establish the archaeology and location of each wonder. Materials from ancient sources and the results of modern excavations suggest why particular places and objects have been taken as the touchstone of human achievement.
