Welcome to The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World podcast Series by Cambridge For Kids. This fourth episode details The Lighthouse of Alexandria. The Lighthouse at Alexandria was the first known lighthouse and stood for 1600 years on the coast of Egypt. It was built on the island of Pharos, to help guide trade ships into its busy harbor at Alexandria. The lighthouse was damaged by several earthquakes and eventually became an abandoned ruin.

Written and Narrated by Cambridge University Archaeologist: Matthew John Brooks
