This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World – The Temple of Artemis. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
The Temple of Artemis, was a huge, beautiful place of worship, that was built around 550 BCE in the rich, port city of Ephesus located in what is now western Turkey. When the beautiful monument was burned down 200 years later by the arsonist Herostratus in 356 BCE, the Temple of Artemis was built again, just as large but even more intricately decorated. It was this 2nd version of the Temple of Artemis that was awarded a place among the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
The Temple of Artemis was well-known in the ancient world and was a destination for many worshippers. For 500 years, the Temple of Artemis was revered and visited. Then, in 262 CE, the Goths, one of the many tribes from the north, invaded Ephesus and destroyed the Temple. By 1100 CE, the few remaining citizens of Ephesus had completely forgotten that the Temple of Artemis ever existed.
