A History Lesson:

Here are those original seven wonders of the ancient world:

The Great Pyramid of Giza, 2560 BC
The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, 580 BC?
The Statue of Zeus at Olympia, 450 BC
The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, 550 BC
The Mausloeum at Halicarnassus, 350 BC
The Colossus of Rhodes (my personal favorite), 282 BC
The Lighthouse of Alexandria, 290 BC

And there you have it.

Check back in July 2007, when I'll tell you the official winners of the New 7 Wonders contest!
