Of these famous landmarks, which was established first?
A: Roman Colosseum B: Stonehenge
C: Parthenon D: Great Wall of China

Harriet thinks the Colosseum was a few hundred years before or after the year zero. She thinks the Parthenon was a little before that she assumes. Stonehenge she thinks could be 5,000 years old or only 2,000 years old. Her gut makes her think the Great Wall is probably the oldest.
[Reveal] Spoiler: 50/50
50/50 leaves Stonehenge & Parthenon.

Harriet rethinks her answer. She's visited New Grange in Ireland which was the oldest free-standing stone structure in the world, maybe about 6,000 or 8,000 years old. She's thinking Stonehenge may be around 2,000 B.C. and she doesn't think Ancient Greece extends back that far. In the end she goes with Stonehenge which is old and mysterious
[Reveal] Spoiler: Answer
B: Stonehenge

The horn
Harriet will return on Friday.
