Library of Alexandria Found

Librarians rejoice! The site of the ancient Library of Alexandria has been found! A team of Egyptian and Polish archaeologists has unearthed the Royal Library of Alexandria, destroyed in 48 B.C.E. during an insurrection against Caesar. So far 13 conference rooms, including a U-shaped auditorium, have been discovered, a space large enough to accomodate 5,000 students. Material from the Royal Library was said to have been removed to Serapeum, but this library was then sacked by the Christians in the 4th century and later by the Arabs in the 7th.
