Not been able to read the whole thread sorry because I'm a bit busy in work (not busy enough to skim though :P). Anyway I remember reading this in the news and first thing I thought was Iram of the Pillars or Ubar. There's a whole host of supposed lost cities that this could be but regardless it's a great discovery on it's own, without a name.

Geez, if there's issues with funding then give me a broom and dustpan and pay for my flight there government. I'll do the rest on my own!

So exciting!  I love these kinds of finds.  Just recently the Whale Graveyard and now this. The planet is so wonderful with so many mysteries and secrets to show us.

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.


Great story!  How exciting.

Could this be the site of the remains of what they thought was the 15000 year old civilization mentioned in 2003 ?

some photos.. of the Libya's south western desert... more than 100 fortified farms, villages with Castlelike structures...  at the moment they are saying it is from AD1-500... But ;)


That story was even better.

No doubt that, given the chance, fundamentalists will blow them up, as they did those Buddhist statues...

This is nothing new. IN 1984 one of the space shuttles used radar to map the Sahara desert. The radar penetrated several feet in the gound and reveraled many ancient rivers and man made structures.
  So 27 years have passed since those radar pictures were made and what has happened? Practically nothing. Why? Very simple. The academic system (the same one that gives us Penn State and their perverts) did not want to do anything. They can blame the late leader of Libya, but that is an excuse.
  There is no doubt that if all these ruines were opened the history books will have to be rewritten and that is something the professors do not want to do.
Flipping nora, I'd like to nominate this post for the most contrived attempt to squeeze in one's particular hobby horse on a completely unrelated subject. That's right, yes, it was all part of a Conspiracy to protect Perverts.     :unsure2:

Just found this, unfortunately it's written in French but it's posted on the Kabyles.net site, Kabyles being the first inhabitants of the Sahara.


Oupsss it would have helped to place the link :P

Edit: I misread it, these are "200 B.C - 700 A.D." ruins?

These are quite "young" then, phoenician and greek settlements in north africa go back to 600 B.C, and Garamantes presence goes back to 1000 B.C.

if there is some sites of possible potential high yields of natural resources /gold/oil/rare earth/coal anywhere within two hundred miles of the area, for certainty there won't be any possibility of further research and much of what is now excited interest would be reduced to an insignificant, unimportant rubble of no historical or cultural value.  
The big corporations will see to that, they pay most of the bills for research, the say the final say...
