Each chapter focuses on a specific monument and contains a short history of the civilization that built it; how the monument was likely used; a description of its structure; how it has inspired great structures of our own age (e.g., I. M. Pei's Louvre pyramid); how the building was likely engineered; and its known or theorized fate.

Artifacts and tools, period drawings and paintings, contemporary plans, and photographs of archaeologists at work round out this remarkable look at the most splendid and ambitious accomplishments from the greatest civilizations of the ancient world.
