Time may have eroded the memory of a civilization but not the mystery of what was.

One day as the Mediterranean sun beat down on the bay of Aboukir, the cities slipped into the sea without a whisper of wind, buried for centuries. Who wouldn’t dream of unearthing lost antiquities from a forgotten civilization, sunken into obscurity? Determined to recover the cities that vanished, Franck Goddio, a mathematician by trade and underwater archeologist at heart, delivered the discovery of a millennium for he located not a shipwreck but an entire civilization. Experience this story in Egypt’s Lost Cities at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum. Open 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. seven days a week (closed New Year's Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day) at The Reagan Library & Museum, 40 Presidential Drive, Simi Valley. Info/Tix: click here
