Tripolitania (Libya Archaeological Guides)

This is a new series of guides to the archaeology of Libya, from prehistoric times until the invasion of the Bani Hilal in AD 1051, written by acknowledged experts for the non-specialist traveller. The first volume, TRIPOLITANIA by Philip Kenrick, deals with a region which offers the visitor not only the classical splendours of UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as Sabratha and Lepcis Magna, but also a hinterland which is rich in standing monuments of the Punic, Roman and early Islamic periods. All are described and explained in a comprehensive gazetteer. Contains: - Historical background, from prehistory until the early Middle Ages - Regional maps, site plans, drawings and reconstructions of individual buildings - Museum layout plans and guides to displays - Navigating instructions, with GPS coordinates for most sites - Lavish photography in colour.

Dr. Philip Kenrick is a classical archaeologist who has worked extensively in Libya, both on excavations (at Benghazi, Cyrene, Sabratha and Lepcis Magna) and on field survey in the Jabal Nafusah and in the pre-desert of Tripolitania. He is an Honorary Research Associate of the Institute of Archaeology at Oxford University and is Treasurer of the Society for Libyan Studies. In recent years he has also led cultural tours of Libya and other Mediterranean countries.
