  • 7. Well understanding the past is very important because it helps us see how much we have evolved and changed over the millions of years. It also makes us see how lucky we are now that everyone has a voice and we are free people. It gives us an understanding of how the world used to work and how peaceful the world is now.
    What does Exploring the Past do for the World Now?
  • 8. The reason things become famous in the archaeological world is because their so big, important or amazing like the city of Pompeii, The Titanic and The Tomb of Tutankhamen. Pompeii was is so famous because it was an entire Roman city almost perfectly preserved so it gives such a good image of how the Romans lived. Then Tutankhamen was 1 of the few child pharaohs. And Titanic was famous because everyone thought it was indestructible and when it sunk they still had 250 life boats left and didn’t use them.
    What are the Most Famous Discoveries and Why?
  • 9. The Great Pyramid of Giza, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, The Great Wall of China, Temple of Artemis, Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, Colossus of Rhodes and The Lighthouse of Alexandria are the 7 Wonders of the World and still remain unknown.
    A lot them have very likely theories such as the Great Wall of China which was built to keep any enemies out.
    These are the seven wonders of the world because they remain unproven.
    What is Left to Figure out?
  • 10. Some people might explore because they were surrounded with history when they were a child or wanted to make a point. Some people find something they read so interesting they’ll go find out more about it and make a living out of it. And others, well, they’d be so interested and curious that they’ll go follow it up, others might find it on accident.
