In 48 B.C, during the Siege of Alexandria, Julius Caesar’s army set fire to the Great Library of Alexandria effectively destroying an estimated 40,000 scrolls, ancient artifacts, and sacred texts we’ll never ever get to read or see.
According to historians, we’ve lost so much knowledge in that fire, it set humanity back hundreds of years. Who can tell what mysteries and ancient knowledge these texts held? Where could humanity be by now if we knew the secrets, knowledge, and technology these ancient civilizations uncovered for us?
Unfortunately, we’ll never know. But we can prevent the same tragedy from happening ever again.
