I tower over the man-made plain;
My peaks scrape the heavens.
I have many brothers; in fact,
We may be as many as a hundred and seven.

We're as ancient as the oldest trees,
But not older than the hills.
We've been studied for centuries now,
But with mystery we're still filled.



Answer

The pyramids of Egypt.

It's estimated that there are 80-110 pyramids in Egypt, the oldest of which are around 4,500 years old. (The oldest living tree is about 4,750 years old.) Scholars have been studying the pyramids for nearly 200 years, but there are still many questions about them. We don't even know how they were built!

The Great Pyramid at Giza is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Some believe that it originally had a golden top that was stolen by tomb raiders.
