The Archaeology of Fazzan’ is a major series of reports on the archaeology and history of Libya’s southwest desert region. The key element of the story of Fazzan is the existence here of an early Libyan civilisation, the Garamantes, and the publication of these volumes puts into the public domain a rich dossier of information about their antecedents and descendants in this desert environment.
This was a singularly important moment in Libya’s cultural history, with resonances also in Sub-Saharan Africa. There is great interest in the published volumes from specialists in Saharan, Sub-Saharan and Mediterranean archaeology and history, as for the first time we can see in detail the effect of early Trans-Saharan links.
