The Lost Army of King Cambyses

Apr 24, 2024 | History, Videos

The Lost Army of King Cambyses has been an enigmatic mystery that has captivated the imaginations of historians, archeologists, and geologists for centuries. Six hundred years before the birth of Christ, King Cambyses II of the First Persian Empire rallied an army of over 50,000 troops with the intent to overtake the temple of Amon in Egypt. They never arrived, and no traces were ever found of either their existence or their brutal deaths. Suspicions have been raised that they may have fallen victim to the perils of the desert.

In 1996, a series of bone fragments and ancient arrowheads were discovered in the desert by explorer Laszlo Almasy – whose daring efforts formed the basis for The English Patient movie script – though his exact location was not revealed. A new team of explorers set out to pick up where he left off. Filmmakers followed them on their journey as they sought to discover one of the most profound archeological finds in history: The Lost Army of King Cambyses.

As this modern team ventured into the barren wasteland in search for answers, questions arose as to whether it was possible for such a large army to have successfully completed such a journey. Estimates suggest that it would have taken at least 3,000 tons worth of supplies to keep them nourished throughout their travels and how could they possibly maneuver through an unfamiliar environment without sophisticated maps?
