The second volume of the series dedicated to environmental, archaeological and historical research in Wadi Tanezzuft, the imposing river valley west of the Tadrart Akakus mountains, presents the final publication of the investigations carried out in the fortified village of Aghram Nadharif in the Barkat oasis. The settlement had a flourishing life from about 50. BC to ca. 250 AD and offers for the first time a complete picture of a town from the Garamantic age in the classical age. In addition to the publication of the excavation and the archaeological, botanical and faunal finds found, the volume contains a series of interventions on the history of the site, the economy, the demography and the role played by the citadel in the life of the entire region.
