Descrizione

Il volume, secondo della serie dedicata alle ricerche ambientali, archeologiche e storiche nel Wadi Tanezzuft, l’imponente valle fluviale a occidente delle montagne del Tadrart Akakus, presenta la pubblicazione finale delle indagini condotte nel villaggio fortificato di Aghram Nadharif nell’oasi di Barkat. L’insediamento ebbe vita fiorente dal 50 ca. a.C. al 250 ca. d.C. e offre per la prima volta un quadro completo di un abitato dell’età garamantica nell’età classica. Oltre alla pubblicazione dello scavo e dei reperti archeologici, botanici e faunistici rinvenuti, il volume contiene una serie di interventi sulla storia del sito, l’economia, la demografia e il ruolo svolto dalla cittadella nella vita dell”intera regione.
