The Seven Missing Wonders of the World
(Above: Have You Seen This Woman?)
The tomb of Nefertitti, the most famous of ancient Egypt's queens.
The wreck of a ship that sank while transporting $1 billion of gold.
Amelia Earhart's airplane, which crashed in 1937.
Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece.
The Holy Grail.
What do all of these things have in common? They're all lost--and some of them have been for centuries. Anyone smart (or lucky) enough to track them down will be rewarded with both fame and fortune.
Thinking of having a look? This article in the Wall Street Journal comes with an interactive map of the world's seven missing wonders.
It's interesting, but why only SEVEN? I would add a few more to the list . . . Blackbeard's treasure, the Florentine Diamond, The Ark of the Covenant . . . to name only three.
