ANCIENT AERIAL MAP
The Ancient library of Alexandria located in the Egyptian port city founded by Alexander the Great purportedly contained all the knowledge of the ancient world. Many rumors, speculations and written testimony from the era suggest is was burned by Julius Cesar. A Roman navel battle in the port near the city center may have resulted in a fire that consumed the world renowned seat of all that had ever been written on a scroll. The Library contained as many as 700,000 scrolls at the time of its demise.
