Wonders of the Medieval World

.Many lists of wonders of the world are said to have existed during the Middle Ages, although it is unlikely that these lists originated at that time because the word medieval was not even invented until the Enlightenment-era, and the concept of a Middle Age did not become popular until the 16th century.^ In recent times, many new lists consisting of wonders of the medieval world and the modern world have been developed.

^ The reason it is in this list is because it was originally included as one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Simple English

The Seven Wonders of the World (or the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World) is a widely-known list of seven great buildings or structures from the classical time period.

Contents

Seven Wonders of the Ancient World

This is a list put together in the second century BC by Antipater of Sidon and Philon of Byzantium. This explains why it only lists monuments of the Mediterranean world. There are other slightly different version: this is the most usual one.

Out of those structures only the Great Pyramid still exists in the 21st century. Most of the wonders were built by the Greeks. Earlier versions listed the Walls of Babylon and the Palace of Cyrus the Great.

Seven Wonders of the Modern World

The Seven Wonders of the Modern World were decided by the American Society of Civil Engineers. However, some other variations of the list exist (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonders_of_the_world for more).

They are:

Seven Natural Wonders of the World

Like with the other lists of wonders, there is no single list of seven natural wonders of the world, as there have been arguments over how large the list should be. One of the many lists was compiled by CNN.
