These photographs capture the views from the top of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

A group of Russian tourists waited until official visiting hours were over at Egypt's famous Giza Necropolis, before scaling the enormous Great Pyramid as the sun began to set.

The Russians managed to escape the attention of security guards at the ancient site, allowing photographer Vitaliy Raskalov to snap pictures of the surrounding desert and the majestic Sphinx from the top of the 455ft structure.

When I was in Egypt, I saw graffiti carved into temples, usually just a name and a date — everything from French soldiers in the early 1800s to Englishmen making the grand tour in the 1920s.

the only thing that would have made them better is is an 0dumb0 drone was flying by at the same time. :)

That can be arranged...

The comments at the link are hilarious. Low information/perpetually outraged morons and their 'holier than thou' babble.
None of the world famous ancient civilizations (not a single one) have been protected, cherished, studied and deciphered by the locals. Those imperialist Europeans and other 'westerners' have done all of the heavy lifting, preservation and understanding.
The locals always destroy what is "theirs." Steal it apart, destroy it or just wantonly dismantle it. The Elgin Marbles were being ground up for mortar when Lord Elgin purchased what was left of them.

The only ancient temples, monuments and grand architectural wonders still preserved today exist only because the locals either didn't know they were there, or required too much work and effort to destroy them for other purposes.
