Roman cities of Tripolitania magnificiently documented, 2 Mar. 2001
Living in Libya for three years (oil industry)gave me the opportunity to visit and photograph these great Roman cities on numerous weekendtrips and gain a good first hand knowledge of all the ruins. I was quite surprised to find this excellent book (good price!!) in London after my return; the Italian archeologists can only be congratulated. Not only are the photographs providing a very good documentation and are allowing for an impression of the real thing but also the text is quite informative and up to scientific standards. Some of my Libyan collegues used to joke: "If you know Leptis Magna, you can forget about the Forum Romanum". Having seen both I can only agree.
