Can anyone refer me to some good books or websites on the ancient city of Alexandria, especially the library or light house? Thanks

I bought a book a few weeks ago called "The Rise and Fall of Alexandria" by Justin Pollard and Howard Reid. I found that the book is well written. I am only half-way through, but so far the book describes in detail about the history of Alexandria.

Hope this helps! Smile
