    What really happened to it/them?
    What brought this question on? I watched an instant play on netflix titeld AGORA. When it was over, i googled the topic title. There seems to be some different views by historians. Thought I'd see what your take was.

    I saw on a movie that they were under water and then caved in and were destroyed by the bad guys.

    Perished. How much knowledge throughout history has perished in fires, floods or just deterioration? Today we have massive amounts of data and most of it is being converted to bytes. I can just envision a future time where a massive electromagnetic storm hits the planet and all of that data gets scrambled and the worlds knowledge once again reverts to the dark ages.
