I have a friend who is going to study to be an archeologist, and for as long as I have known him, he has been 100% obsessed with little else but history (to the point that his word on a historical matter is often taken at face value by some of my other friends). But, I was talking with him one day about the Library, and according to him, some archeologists theorize that the Library of Alexandria wasn't in Alexandria at all! It was another of Alexander the great's deception ploys to hide his riches. (mind you, as I write this, I can plainly see many contradictions, and I personally want more proof than my friends word on the matter, but hey, at least its discussion fodder  ) That being said, it's possible we might one day find the TRUE library, and find even greater riches (material/knowledge,etc.) within.
Lets hope that much is true!
