Pyramids at Giza
Pyramids at Giza. Satellite image of the three pyramids at Giza, in northern Egypt. The pyramids are thought to have been built between 2600 and 2500 BC, as tombs and monuments for members of the ruling dynasties of ancient Egypt. The largest pyramid (lower left) was built for King Khufu, or Cheops. Its construction is thought to have taken over 20 years, and for many centuries it was the tallest building in the world. The pyramid at centre right was built for King Khafre, son of Khufu. The smallest pyramid (upper right) was built for King Menkaure. The pyramids at Giza are the only one of the Seven Wonders of the World still intact.

Standing stones. This is Castlerigg Stone Circle, Cumbria, England. It is on the level top of a hill in the Lake District. There are 38 stones making a circle about 30 metres across, with other stones within the circle. The tallest stone is more than 2 metres tall. It is thought that it was built in around 3000 BC, the later part of the Stone Age. It is believed that it was used by the prehistoric peoples of the area for ceremonial or religious purposes. It may also have been used in astronomy, as several astronomical alignments can be observed with the stones. The site is owned by the National Trust.
