In Search Of History - Library Of Alexandria (History Channel Documentary)
Narrated by David Ackroyd
The Great Library of Alexandria in Alexandria, Egypt, was one of the largest and most significant libraries of the ancient world. The Library quickly acquired a large number of papyrus scrolls, due largely to the Greek Ptolemaic kings' aggressive and well-funded policies for procuring texts. It is unknown precisely how many such scrolls were housed at any given time, but estimates range from 40,000 to 400,000 at its height.
