10 Mysterious Ancient Buildings

Listverse: When people in the ancient world found gigantic ruins, they often described them as Cyclopean—as if only mythical Cyclops could have built such things. We tend not to go in for such legendary explanations today, but plenty of mysterious buildings from the past are still provoking debate. We may not know who built them, or even why.

Akrotiri (on the island of Santorini) ain't half bad. Constructed somewhere before 2500 BC; destroyed u a volcanic eruption around 1700 BC. Still in good enough shape to be a major tourist attraction.
