Machu Picchu: This ancient Incan city in Peru is located high in the Andes Mountains and was abandoned in the 16th century. Its location and purpose have puzzled historians for centuries, and the site remains one of the most popular tourist destinations in South America.

The Rosetta Stone: This ancient artifact was discovered in Egypt in 1799 and is inscribed with a decree from King Ptolemy V in three scripts: ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, demotic script, and ancient Greek. Its discovery was instrumental in deciphering ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs.
