The oldest of the seven ancient wonders of the world, the Great Pyramid of Giza was built between 2540 and 2560 BCE.  It is also known as Khufu’s Horizon, after the 4th Pharaoh whose tomb Egyptologists believe the structure was intended to house.  Standing at 481 feet, the Great Pyramid was the word’s tallest manmade structure from its inception until it was surpassed by the Lincoln Cathedral, in England, in 1311 ACE.
