According to classical Greek historian Herodotus, 50000 Persian warriors were killed in a sandstorm while crossing the desert in Western Egypt around 2500 years ago. The Bedouin in the area have maintained that in a certain place in the desert, and under the right weather conditions (dry, presumably), one can see the 1000s of skeletons belonging to that self-same army. Amazingly enough they have now been found by science and documented. I assume they will now jerk to life, Harryhausen-style, and wreak a horrible revenge on the living.

In case you're wondering, that picture is of a dragon skeleton made from whale bones and placed as an installation in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness. Why? To sell this sword, obviously.
