really liked it

Excellent first reading of Alexandria which opens with the founding of the city on the Mediterranean shores and takes us through the rise of the city in becoming one of the foremost centers of scientific discovery, art, and a host of other areas; an oasis of culture in an otherwise savage world of conquest, war and barbaric rulers. Now if only we could find the Library scrolls hidden away somewhere..
