Library of Alexandria found (or probably)

Library of Alexandria found, or at least a very early university

"Archaeologists have found what they believe to be the site of the Library of Alexandria, often described as the world's first major seat of learning.

A Polish-Egyptian team has excavated parts of the Bruchion region of the Mediterranean city and discovered what look like lecture halls or auditoria."

It's a major pleasure to get some good news from the Middle East, and I'm hoping they'll find books that we don't already have copies of.
