Ancient Architecture Volume 2: Baalbek, Great Pyramid and Ziggurat of Ur #Baalbek – The megalithic ruins located in Baalbek are AMONG the most magnificent of the ancient structures in the world. Mainstream academia, although not completely agreed upon the particulars, has an overall consensus that explains the ruins and history of this site. However, as is the case with many mainstream timelines regarding megalithic ancient sites, there are many contradictions to their hypotheses. #GreatPyramid – When it comes to the Great Pyramid at Giza, everyone can agree on at least two things: It is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex. And, it is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World…That is about as much of a consensus that can be reached. #ZigguratofUr – One of the largest and best-preserved ziggurats of Mesopotamia is the great Ziggurat at Ur. Small excavations occurred at the site around the turn of the twentieth century, and in the 1920s Sir Leonard Woolley revealed the monument in its entirety.
