But that list only included the incredible monuments and other marvelous structures the writers knew about - which were all located in Greece and its surrounding countries. the writers were not aware of the many wonders in other parts of the world. the Middle East was home to some of the world's earliest civilizations, and those ancient people also created some impressive wonders. One group built an entire city carved out of stone. Another created an amazing temple adorned with gold. Another place had a big library, filled with books written on clay tablets. What other ancient treasures does the ancient Middle East hold? Some are found in ancient palaces, on towering cliffs, and in rugged deserts. You're about to begin your search for the seven wonders of the Ancient Middle East!
