You are welcome to join me for another fascinating tour, this time exploring one of the most famous and most expansive repositories of knowledge in the ancient world, the Great Library of Alexandria (roughly 300 BC - 400 AD). Founded by offshoots of Alexander the Great's conquests in Egypt, in the newly-founded city of Alexandria, the powers that be had a determined and well-funded program to source all available texts, on any subject, at the time in the form of papyrus scrolls. There were librarians, scholars, archivists, students all working on preserving, organising, and commenting on texts from the ancient world, an effort that hugely fuelled the renaissance and our heritage today, as many texts wouldn't have survived if not for the library. Any donations welcome!: Paypal: calcuttet77@hotmail.com If you’re interested in knowing about my other tours and how to join live (instead of watching afterwards on Youtube), and to be notified in the future, feel free to check out my various platforms: Facebook: www.facebook.com/EdwardsTours Meetup: www.meetup.com/Fun-and-Fascinating-London-Walking-… Eventbrite: edwardstours.eventbrite.co.uk/
