      I wonder if anyone has compiled a summary of 'lost' armies. Must be quite a few who marched off and died in one wilderness or another.

        Good post John. You just gave me my "warm up" for tomorrow's classes. Nothing teenagers enjoy more than old bones and weapons.

          There seems to be a bit of controversy over these brothers.

          Press Release- Alleged Finds in Western Desert

          I need to inform the public that recent reports published in newspapers, news agencies and TV news announcing that “twin brothers Angelo and Alfredo Castiglioni have unearthed remains of the Persian army of Cambyses,” are unfounded and misleading.

          The brothers are not heading any archaeological mission in Berenike Panchrysos at the small Bahrin Oasis near Siwa Oasis. This site has been excavated since 2002 by an Italian mission led by Dr. Paulo Gallo of Turin University. The Castiglioni brothers have not been granted permission by the SCA to excavate in Egypt, so anything they claim to find is not to be believed.

          The Supreme Council of Antiquities has already informed the proper legal and security authorities in Egypt and are taking the necessary procedures.
