There are many ancient ruins around the world, from different societies including the Egyptians, Chinese, Mayans, Romans, Greeks, Muslims, Jews, Aztecs and more. In some cases, the ruins are isolated, in other places, modern cities have grown up around them.

Each location and society has their own type of ruins. In Rome, the Roman columns are notable, whereas the Mayans and Egyptians each had pyramids.
