Vanished Persian Army Said Found in Desert? UPDATE 11/30/09

Bones, jewelry and weapons found in Egyptian desert may be the remains of Cambyses' army that vanished 2,500 years ago. Read the article.

And now read a great background piece which casts significant doubt on the "discovery".  (Btw, rogueclassicism looks like a great site. I'll be following it...)

And here's the official statement found on Dr. Zahi's website.

And here is a press release about the Iranians' stake in the whole deal!
