Yes. Use testdisk from any live CD.

Here is a link to a web page that claims that it is possible to recover a deleted partition table. I have never tried it so I can't vouch for its accuracy.

That page uses gpart which is the other usual recommendation.
However, I also recommend testdisk. I noted a post (here on LQ) a couple of weeks back from the developer saying an update was available. Nice to know it's still being developed.
