The Temple of Bacchus at the ancient Roman ruins on November 10, 2010 in Baalbeck, Lebanon. Not originally built to worship the wine god, the temple was completed in 150AD and was dedicated to Venus. Archeologists and historians believe this was the most beautifully decorated Roman temple in the world. Work is believed to have begun on the temples in 60BC, taking more than 120 years to finish, utilising the resources of 100,000 slaves. Photo by Jamie McDonald
