This is the first in a new series of guides to the archaeology of Libya, from prehistoric times until the invasion of the Bani Hilal in AD 1051. It 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, packed full of plans and photographs, and with GPS coordinates and directions for visiting.

About the Author:

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.

Review:

Libya has long been recognised for its extraordinarily rich archaeological heritage. What has been lacking in recent years has been an up-to-date and high-quality guidebook to these spectacular sites. This guidebook is both authoritative and accessible: a real incentive to join a tour to Libya and look beyond the largest and most impressive sites such as Lepcis Magna and Sabratha. Don't waste your money on lesser products, this is THE guidebook to Libya's archaeology. --Prof. David Mattingly, University of Leicester

Fortunately, now and then, you stumble across a guidebook written with a lifetime of learning, peppered with enthusiasm, a distillation of on-the-ground knowledge, experience and passion. Philip Kenrick's Tripolitania is just such a book. ... Time and time again, I found Kenrick had not only got it right, but had marshalled the information in an admirably concise and accessible style. Within the first few pages he won my complete trust, and quickly became an indispensable travelling companion. ... The final use which I made of my already well-thumbed Kenrick was to stuff it in the pocket of my linen jacket as I travelled with a friend to the Roman frontier fortress of Bu Njem. I have been there a number of times but I have to confess that a quick glance at Kenrick as we brewed some coffee in the lee of the neighbouring Italian fort greatly sharpened my wits. To be able to identify the secret storeroom of the chapel of the standards (now once more buried under tons of beautiful windblown sand), the site of the secretary-filled scriptorium, to cite the exact day on which the Roman troops first made camp, added immeasurably to the tangible pleasure of my guest.
I salute the Society for Libyan Studies, and its offshoot, the Silphium Press, for having published a most exceptional guidebook to the classical archaeology of Tripolitania. --Barnaby Rogerson, author and publisher
