Egypt wasn't the only country to have pyramids. This fourteen-story, 154-foot
pyramid is Tikal Temple 1 in Guatemala in Central America, just south of Mexico. It
was built about 810 CE (AD), in a major city from 200-900 CE, of the great Mayan civilization.

3. Right Photo of Greek Statues:                   




These statues of women, ancient Greek in appearance, were built in 1889 for the Empress
of Austria as part of a building meant to resemble a palace in a mythical Greek country that
was the  last place visited by Achilles, the great hero of the Trojan War,
before returning home.
It is called the Palace of Achilles and is now a museum on the Ionian island of
Corfu in Greece.
