#1 I remember vaguely about an ancient egyptian city that completely vanished in a large sandstorm, both buried and blown away?

Myth?

And no I'm NOT refering to "Indiana Jones".

#2 Many ancient cities have vanished into the dust or the jungle over the years, Redneck Jim. That's what makes archeology so exciting for those who get excited by it. I think they recently found a series of cities in the jungles of Central or South America (I'm not sure which) -- a completely unsuspected civilization.
