Ancient University of Alexandria Found
A Polish-Egyptian team has found the remains of the University of Alexandria. It has been found in a part of modern Alexandria where a theatre had already been identified, now thought to be part of the library complex. 13 large auditoria have been found. The University was legendary and texts describe it, but this is the first time that any part of the library has been discovered. Amongst many renowned scholars who worked there were Euclid and Archimedes.
