Cyrenaica (Libya Archaeological Guides)

This is the second volume of a series of guidebooks to the history and antiquities of Libya, a country which in Classical times was as important to the culture of the Mediterranean as any other bordering its coasts. Cyrenaica (known to the Arabs as the Green Mountain) has a terrain which resembles that of Greece or Turkey. It was settled at an early date by Greeks and subsequently was part of the Roman and Byzantine empires before the advent of the Arabs. Each of these civilisations has left its mark on the landscape; all are described and explained in a comprehensive gazetteer. - Historical background, from prehistory until the Italian invasion in 1911. - 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.
