Cleopatra’s Needle

On the Thames Embankment in London there stands a massive granite column cut from a single piece of stone. It is known as Cleopatra’s Needle and is more than 3,500 years old! The column is one of two stone pillars built by the Egyptian ruler Thutmose III in 1475 B.C. for the temple of the sun-god at Helipolis near the present-day city of Cairo. The monument, in England since 1878, has ‘aged’ more in the last hundred years than it did during 3500 years of exposure in Egypt’s dry climate.
