B REVIEW:
This site is designed to give users a full understanding of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Can YOU name them all? Upon entering the site, you are greeted with a small icon of each Wonder, and below, a brief history of how the Seven Wonders were picked. Each of the Seven Wonders has a quote from early historians/poets (except Giza), a location, history, and description. What is also a nice feature is that within the body of the texts everywhere, there are external links to relevant materials to help guide the visitor. This site is extremely easy to learn from and pleasant to visit.
