- Ten miles west of Cairo, at the geographical center of the Earth’s landmass, is a man-made Limestone plateau which is one mile square and rises one hundred thirty feet above the Nile Delta. This area, which today is called Giza, is unmistakably the most important archeological site on the planet. It is at the Giza Plateau that we find the ancient remains of a vast industrial complex comprising ten pyramidal structures, the most famous of which is the Great Pyramid. This Great Pyramid is the largest, oldest and only remaining of the Seven Wonders of the World.
