    Sorry for all the links at the same time but I thought it would be better than spreading them over several days.

    It was amazing to see how they built their homes into the cliffs and how there seemed to be an feeling of architecture involved. Not just a cave but an actual structure. Cliff dwellers villages from the Sinagua and Anasazi tribes were built between 350 and 1300 AD.
    Hey, it's a start. There are actually artifacts that date back almost 15,000 years before Eric The Red discovered North America.

    Machu Picchu? Canyon De Chelly? Stone Henge?
    Why do posters think everyone here passed their geography test? (I, for one, certainly didn't and had to googled the web...) Please, add the location or at least just "UK, Peru; etc."

    But it got you to look them up on google, so maybe that's a good thing. And hopefully you read a little more about each place, and maybe increased your geographical (and historical) knowlege base.

    What? No one else has taken photos of ancient temples, buildings? What about man-made hills?

    Just out of curiousity, what are we considering ancient?

    I'm thinking before the dark ages (4th to 11th century) here, or maybe up to the 13th century.

    I guess it has to do with your frame of reference. My grandkids think I qualify for that classification, but I'm not even a bloody Visigoth (although my great-great grandparents are from Germany).

    Explorer> Impressive buildings there. Impressive composition. 3 photos and a story is already half told. Very interesting.

    George> what do we consider ancient? hmmmmm............. I never thought of that. Let posters decide. Saying that, I don't expect your grandkids to post your photo here either.
