The Temple of Artemis

The Temple of Artemis is a wonder of the ancient world. It was 3-4 times the size of the Athena Parthenos. It has a few parts of it stashed away and on display at the British museum.
Artemis was an Olympian god, but, in the temple she did not represent hunting or maidens. She represented fertility, farming, the moon, and animals. They sometimes called her Diana.
It is many hundreds of years old. All that's left though is a few rocks. Some ruins are at the British museum today. It was made by a bunch of slaves. It took many years to build. It was made mostly of solid marble. It had walls with gold and silver murals. The temple was for mainly worship and sacrifices. They sacrificed pigs, grains, wheat, and livestock.
