According to Herodotus 3.26, the Persian King Cambyses sent an army to threaten the Oracle of Amun at the Siwa Oasis. The army of 10,000 men was halfway across the desert when a massive sandstorm sprang up, burying them all. Although many Egyptologists regard the story as a myth, people have searched for the remains of the soldiers for many years. These have included Count László Almásy (on whom the novel The English Patient was based) and modern geologist Tom Brown. Some believe that in recent petroleum excavations, the remains may have been uncovered.
