Student Stories on the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus - The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus by Hanna Reed

 

 

 

The picture is an artistic impression of the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus.

Today the Mausoleum is well-know as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. It was ordered to be made by the queen herself, whose name was Artemisia.

She, the queen, created this not to become a wonder of the world but in memory of her husband. The queen’s husband was Mausolus of Caria who died in 353 B.C. This structure became his tomb which was called a Mausoleum after the king's name.

Although this building is no longer standing, you can visit the British Museum to see some of the remains and left overs of the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus.
