Description

The volume relates to the archaeological campaign conducted in 2006 by the 'La Sapienza' University of Rome and by the Department of Archeology of Tripoli in the Libyan Sahara, in the areas granted in concession to ENI North Africa. The documentation is essentially entrusted to photographs. In addition to photos illustrating the sequences of excavation activities and the ceramic and lithic finds, numerous unpublished photos of rock paintings and engravings are reported. The text is in English and constitutes the first official report on the archaeological risk in the areas where oil searches are carried out.
