Satellite images have revealed the ruins of a long-lost civilisation which existed in what is now the Sahara desert in Roman times and before. Archaeologists hope that the toppling of Libyan dictator Colonel Gadaffi, who has controlled access to the region in modern times, will permit the secrets of the lost cities beneath the sands to be unravelled properly at last.

Hopefully the truth won't remain hidden.  Somehow, archeologists and historians have difficult time understanding history may have to be re-written.

"lost cities" and "castles in the desert". This sounds awesome!

Perhaps some coordinates, to look in Google Earth? :-)

Interesting granted, but does not look much more than a neolithic site to me. Sparsely populated, few buildings, in short... unremarkable. hardly a "Lost Civilisation".

This is great.I hope they show some photos of what they have discovered. The funny thing is,my late father was in North Africa during World War 2. I recall him talking about flying over the Libyan desert,and you could see from the air where there once had been what appeared to be towns or cities.He also mentioned about rock paintings out in North Africa too.

There's got to be so many cities under sand and water. It would be cool if they brush off the sand and find a new world wonder.

It's Lovecraft's "Nameless City"! Irem, the City of Pillars!
Of course that was supposed to be in the Arabian Peninsula. Close enough, I guess...
