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.
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.
