This documentary from The Learning Channel is the second of a two-part look at the history and present condition of the Seven Wonders of the World. Three of the worldwide wonders are described in this video, starting with the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. The gardens no longer exist, but you will walk through the landscape of Iraq where they once grew. Then, the video takes you to Turkey to look at the remains of the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus. Finally, you will head to Egypt and see the Pyramids of Giza, the only one of the Seven Wonders that is still primarily in tact. Throughout this video, Egypt and antiquities scholar John Romer will guide you through the past and present with running dialogue on the backgrounds of these historical and fascinating sights.
