"Correspondence, notes, draft publications, photographs and plans relating to Smith's work in Libya. The papers primarily concern Smith's work on Ghirza in Tripolitania and Tocra in Cyrenaica but there is also material present relating to other, smaller sites in Libya and Northern Africa. The collection contains papers and photographs belonging to Richard Goodchild and Donald Strong which appear to have been donated to the Society for Libyan Studies Archive as part of the larger Smith collection."

Arrangement

'The collection has been arranged into twelve series;', 1. Ghirza Expeditions', 2. Tocra Expeditions', 3. Libyan Expeditions', 4. General Correspondence', 5. General Articles, Publications and Reports.', 6. Historical Conference, "Libya in History" at the University of Libya', 7. Richard Goodchild Papers', 8. Donald Strong Papers', 9. Press and Newspaper Cuttings', 10. Miscellaneous Documents', 11. Photographs', 12. Maps, Plans and Drawings.', u"The first two series relate to Smith's work at Ghirza and Tocra as Smith appears to have carried out the vast majority of his work on these two sites. Within these series, the records have been arranged by format, eg. correspondence, excavation notes, reports and publication drafts.", Libya Expeditions, General Correspondence and General Articles, Publications and Reports feature correspondence, notes and papers which relate to other Libyan sites. These have been arranged into more general series as there is not a substantial amount of material present on these sites.', The Richard Goodchild Papers have been arranged by subject and subsequently by format within these subseries.', Press and Newspaper Cutting have been arranged by publication and chronologically (eg. The Sunday Ghibli, The Libyan Times...) with the exception of files of newspaper cuttings. These were assembled by Smith and have been maintained in their original order.', Miscellaneous Documents features any document-based material which did not fit into any of the series defined above.', All photographs, apart from those which were inserted into files by Smith, have been arranged in their own series. The Photograph series has been arranged by subject matter. Similarly, the Maps and Plans series has been arranged by subject.'

'Material relating to an air raid which took place at Tripoli harbour during the North African Campaign of the Second World War, on 19 March 1943. During the surprise air raid, Allied ships were attacked by the Luftwaffe at Tripoli Harbour in their first mass attack using the Motobomba circling torpedo.'

Arrangement

'The collection has been divided into two series. Reports and Narratives features official reports and accounts of the events of the air raid. Correspondence and Communications contains letters and naval communications which were sent during and in the aftermath of the attack.'

Custodian History

'The material was received by David J. Mattingly from David J. Buck. David Mattingly passed on the material to John N. Dore at a Society for Libyan Studies Council meeting on 6 December 1988. Dore deposited the material to the Society for Libyan Studies Archive in December 1988.', It is unclear how Buck came to possess the material but it may have been given to him by C.H. Johnston, former editor of The Sunday Ghibli newspaper in Tripoli.'

Biographical history

'The attack began at 18.47 on 19 March 1943 as 12 planes began to bomb H.M. and Merchant ships in Tripoli Harbour. The H.M.S. Derwent was torpedoed by a German Junker Ju 88 bomber and lost four crew members. A number of enemy planes were shot down during the attack.', One of the German planes crashed in close proximity to the S.S. Ocean Voyager. The Ocean Voyager, a British cargo ship, which was carrying a cargo of petrol and ammunition, was set alight and eventually exploded. The debris of this explosion caused considerable damage to the other ships in Tripoli harbour, which is discussed within the collection.', Following the initial attack, efforts were made by the navy officers and by laymen present in the harbour to extract survivors from the burning ships. A number of individuals involved in this effort were later decorated for their actions, including Captain George Stronach, Chief Officer of the Ocean Voyager.', The collection features multiple reports, narratives and correspondence detailing the events of the attack and actions undertaken in the immediate aftermath. The documents also detail the names of ships in the harbour during the attack along with casualties and fatalities. Communications sent to the Naval Officer in Command at Tripoli from ships during the air raid are also present, including the H.M.S. Aphis, Derwent, Easton, Gamtoos, Gloxinia, and Hektor.'

Biographical history

"John Bryan Ward Perkins (3 February 1912 - 28 May 1981) spent his early childhood years in Bromley with his grandparents until his parents return to England following his father's retirement from the ICS (Burma).", As a scholar in Winchester, he was involved in the excavation of Buckley Priory; and by the time he had gained his First in Greats at New College in 1934 he has determined on an archaeological career. He worked on the excavation at Bredon Hill and subsequently studied in France, focusing on the pottery from the oppidum stormed by Caesar at Gergovia near Clermont Ferrand, excavated by Olwen Brogan and Emile Desforges.', In 1936, he was appointed assistant in the London Museum at Lancaster House, then kept under the Keepership of Mortimer Wheeler.', He was briefly held the position of Professor of Archaeology at the Royal University of Malta in 1939 but returned home to volunteer following the outbreak of the Second World War. Serving under Wheeler, the war years took him to North Africa, where he was seconded to organize care of the antiquities under the Military Government in Libya and after re-joining his regiment in Italy, was appointed head of the Monuments and Fine Arts Sub-Commission for Italy, which documented damage to monuments in Italy caused by bombing during the war.', He occupied the position of Director of the British School of Rome from 19467 to 1974. His collaborators included Joyce Reynolds, with whom he edited the "Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania" (1952); Richard Goodchild, Librarian of the School, and later Controller of Antiquities in Cyrenaica; and Jocelynn Toynbee. From association with these and other scholars (including David Oates and Donald Strong), came major papers on the Christian Antiquities in Tripolitania, the Hunting Baths and Lepcis Magna, the system of fortified farms in the hinterland (Limes Tripolitanus), and the architecture of Lepcis Magna.', Ward Perkins was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, a Fellow of the British Academy, and a Commander of the British Empire. He was a member of the Pontificia Accademia in Rome, the German Archaeological Institute, the Royal Academy of Stockholm, and the Academy of Naples.', He retired from the British School at Rome in 1974 but remained active, appointed CMG and subsequently spending a year as an academic advisor for at Princeton, primarily responsible for the exhibition of remains from Pompeii in Burlington House in the autumn of 1976. He was elected president of the Society for Libyan Studies the following year and was acknowledged by Presidency of the XI Congress of Classical Archaeology held in London, being at the time also President of the International Association of Classical Archaeology (FIAC).', He died on 28 May 1981 at the age of 69.'

'Reports, notes, articles and photographs relating to an expedition to Morocco in 1952, an expedition to Algeria in 1959 and various aspects of work carried out in Libya.'

Arrangement

'The collection has been divided into three series based on geographical subject of the records. The series relate to work carried out at Algeria, Libya and Morocco. Within these series, records have been arranged by format (eg. document-based records and photographs).', As the collection was deposited by both Johns and Smith, it is difficult to identify the creator of individual items, for this reason, documents and photographs have not been arranged by creator. It is highly likely that the vast majority of the material within the collection was created by Smith but the collection has been kept independent of the David J. Smith Papers due to this uncertainty.'

He died in Cirenchester in 1981.', Ward-Perkins was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, a Fellow of the British Academy, and a Commander of the British Empire. He was a member of the Pontificia Accademia in Rome, the German Archaeological Institute, the Royal Academy of Stockholm, and the Academy of Naples.', Amongst his many notable publications are Architettura romana (1974, Milan: Electa) and Cities of ancient Greece and Italy: planning in classical antiquity (1974, New York: Braziller).', Geraint Dyfed Barri (G.D.B.) Jones (4 April 1936 - 16 July 1999) was born in St. Helens in Lancashire. He attended High Wycombe Royal Grammar School and went on to study Greats at Jesus College, Oxford, in the late 1950s, but found himself increasingly drawn into Roman archaeology as one of the last pupils of Professor (later Sir) Ian Richmond.', Following the completion of his DPhil he became involved in the South Etruria Survey (1959 - 62) co-ordinated by John Bryan Ward-Perkins. He was subsequently employed in 1963 - 64 as a post-doctoral researcher on the Apulia project.', Appointed lecturer in ancient history and archaeology in the Department of History at Manchester University in 1964, Barri Jones was a key player in the eventual creation of a Department of Archaeology. In 1971, he was promoted to Professor of the department. He served in this role until his untimely death at the age of 63 in 1999.', Renowned for his field work, he was involved in excavations of Roman sites in Wales and Northern England before setting sights on Libya in the 1960s, first in the Sahara, and then at Tocra and Euhesperides (Benghazi).', From 1979 to 1989 he co-directed a project which explored the technology of Roman period farming in the Libyan pre-desert, with the results published in more than 30 specialist articles and an acclaimed two-volume final report (Farming the Desert: the Unesco Libyan Valleys Survey, 1996). Returning to the problems of Libyan coastal cities, he helped co-ordinate and edit the publication of earlier British work at Lepcis Magna (The Severan Buildings of Lepcis Magna, 1993).'

Biographical history

'"The Society for Libyan Studies was formed in 1969 with the aim of formalising, encouraging and co-ordinating British scholarly research in Libya. British involvement in this area of North Africa and particularly the archaeology of Cyrenaica and Tripolitania followed in the footsteps of the Second World War.', The work of the late Sir Mortimer Wheeler, John B. Ward Perkins and Richard Goodchild (who was to become the Controller of Antiquities in Cyrenaica in the newly independent kingdom of Libya) initiated major urban excavations at sites such as Cyrene, Sabratha and Leptis Magna, and numerous surveys of both provinces (primarily by Goodchild) and a special study of the Christian antiquities.', The formal establishment of the Society for Libyan Studies was intended to reorganise the longstanding British academic involvement and act as an independent institution to promote further work in a changing political situation.

Biographical history

'In 1989 the Society for Libyan Studies, in conjunction with the Libyan Department of Antiquities, organised an expedition to El Merj, which was believed to be the site of the historical site of Barqa.', This initial expedition was followed by several more seasons of fieldwork carried out in 1990, 1991, 1992 and 1993.', u"These expeditions bolstered Dore's opinion that El Merj was the site of Barqa, arguing in 1994:", "The broad outline of the case is as follows: a town called Barqa is mentioned by a considerable number of medieval authors writing in Arabic. To judge from them the town flourished between the ninth and eleventh centuries AD but declined thereafter. The association of the names Barqa and El Merj with a single site seems to stem from one author, Ibn Sa \'id, writing in the thirteenth century, though even he is tentative in his identification... After the fourteenth century there is a period which is devoid of information. By the eighteenth century the town(s) of Barqa/El Merj had disappeared (i.e. ceased to be inhabited) but local memory preserved the name and location of El Merj because Pacho visited its ruins and recorded the name in 1825... About twenty years after this a new town called El Merj began to grow up around a castle newly built by the Ottoman authorities on the remains of an earlier town. This town was called Barce by the Italians but reverted to being called El Merj after the second world war, and was finally destroyed by an earthquake in 1963."', ( J. N. Dore (1994).

Custodian History

'The UNESCO Libyan Valleys Survey (ULVS) was an inter-disciplinary archaeological project which, between 1979 and 1989, conducted fieldwork in Tripolitania (north-west Libya) in order to explore evidence of human exploitation and investigate the long-term relationships between settlement, land-use, and environment on the desert margins.', The Libyan government initiated the ULVS and goals were determined by Muammar Gaddafi who wished to determine whether modern farmers could exploit the resources of a dry and inhospitable area as had been done in the Roman era. In 1978, Gaddafi commented that "if archaeology is to be practices at all, then at least let it be relevant to the needs of the people today".', It was in this context that the Libyan Department of Antiquities approached UNESCO with the request to facilitate a series of collaborative archaeological projects within the pre-desert zone of northern Libya. From the outset, the project was seen as an interdisciplinary one. UNESCO approached the British Academy and John B. Ward Perkins proposed G.D.B. "Barri" Jones as one of two field directors for the project. Graeme Barker took on the role as the second field director due to his expertise in archaeological ground survey and in the analysis of past agricultural systems, which included previous work in Libya. Following the preliminary season, David Gilbertson joined as a third field director to co-ordinate the studies in geomorphology and palaeoecology and David Mattingly adopted a pivotal role in directing survey work and many of the excavations. John Dore of the University of Newcastle played a leading role as a ceramicist for the project, 1980 - 1989.', The Anglo-Libyan project was able to undertake the five seasons of fieldwork planned in 1979, 1980, 1981, 1984 and a final season in 1989. The gap between the fourth and fifth season was prompted by a temporary break-off of diplomatic relations between Britain and Libya.', The survey culminated in the publication of Graeme Barker, David Gilbertson, Barri Jones and David Mattingly (eds.), "Farming the Desert. The UNESCO Libyan Valleys Archaeological Survey", (London, 1996) in two volumes. These volumes represent the final reports of the multi-disciplinary surveys carried out between 1979 and 1989.', Sources:', Barker, Graeme, David Gilbertson, Barri Jones and David Mattingly (eds.), "Farming the Desert. The UNESCO Libyan Valleys Archaeological Survey", (London, 1996);', Mattingly, David J., \x93Surveying the Desert: From the Libyan Valleys to Saharan Oases\x94 in British School at Athens Studies 11 (2004): 163\x96176;', Stone, David L., (2000).

'The Society for Libyan Studies monograph is based on work carried out by Richard Goodchild and John Ward Perkins on Christian antiquities in Cyrenaica.', "The account of the Christian antiquities of Tripolitania which Richard Goodchild and John Ward Perkins published in "Archaeologia XCV" (1953) was a landmark in the study of Libya in late antiquity; a companion piece for Cyrenaica was a natural sequel". Following his appointment as Controller of Antiquities in 1953, "Goodchild himself started at once to look for the late antique and Byzantine monuments and soon stimulated a campaign of discovery by members of the Department of Antiquities, who began to explore the rural areas".', "Ward Perkins set about examining, photographing, and describing the finds... and arranged for them to be surveyed and drawn by professional architects... The bulk of the writing was to be the task of Ward Perkins. Goodchild was to have provided an historical introduction but was frustrated by the absence of up-to-date books in Libya and never produced it".', "Ward Perkins took teams to Libya, mainly for study of Christian monuments, in 1955 and 1958; and between these expeditions and after them, when Joyce Reynolds and Elisabeth Rosenbaum (later Alfoldi-Rosenbaum) were in Cyrenaica for other purposes, urged them to make observations for him, Reynolds on Christian inscriptions and Rosenbaum on Christian mosaics".', Ward Perkins continued expeditions to Cyrenaica following the death of Goodchild in 1968. " Meanwhile, developments in the Cyrenaican countryside began to open access to many areas that were previously difficult to visit; and subsequent exploration by the Department of Antiquities brought to light many new Christian monuments... When he died in 1981, Ward Perkins\' files consisted essentially of typescripts containing detailed descriptions, with architectural interpretations, of most of the churches known in 1969 (but not quite all), three notebooks with detailed notes on them and some additional drafts in manuscript, an extensive, but incomplete, collection of drawings and photographs to illustrated what he proposed to say".', "Ward Perkins\' manuscript is manifestly incomplete... We [Reynolds, et all have presented what Ward Perkins wrote almost exactly as he left it, leaving untouched pointed which may seem questionable today in the light of discoveries and discussion since the nineteen-sixties".', "Preface" in Joyce Reynolds (ed.), John B.

Biographical history

'Charles Manser Daniels, 10 August 1932 - 1 September 1996, died aged 63. He developed an interest in history in his native Newcastle, he moved to his home university where he remained for the rest of his life as a museologist.', He was introduced to the rigours of north African, and specifically Libyan, archaeology through his colleague Dr David Smith with whom he made initial trips to southern Tripolitania and the Fezzan.', In 1960, a period of research at the British School in Rome also acted as a springboard for further work in Libya. At the time, the then director stated that he "had best get the desert out of his system while still a young man", but Daniels persister in developing a major programme of work on the archaeology of the Fezzan, the potential of which had first been revealed (with the aid of a military escort) by the Italian archaeologist, Giacomo Caputo before the onset of the second world war.', From 1964 into the early 1970s Daniels conducted a survey and excavation in the Wadi el Agial, the heartland of the Garamantian kingdom, aided by a team of volunteers drawing from the archaeologists of the northern frontier, and with the indefatigueable support of his wife Miriam.', u"In 1980, Daniels was elected chairman of the Libyan Society. His appointment marked a broadening of the pool from which officers were drawn; yet, unfortunately, as political relations between Libya and the UK declined, the Society's role inevitably became circumcised.", Daniels concentrated increasingly on work in northern Britain and was pivotal in the organisation of a highly successful Wall Conference and a series of northern frontier seminars which reproduced, jokes and all, accounts of work in progress and emerging interpretations, notably on the development of the Antonine Wall.', At Newcastle University he moved from an initial position as deputy keeper of antiquities to full-time teaching, serving as chairman of the department. A growing disenchantment with the universities, as student factories at the expense of student and postgraduate involvement in quality research, led to his retirement and the resumption with Miriam of the travels that made him the most knowledgeable Roman Africanist of his generation.', Barri Jones, "Charles Daniels: Unearthing North Africa\'s Past" in The Guardian, 21 October 1996.'

Biographical history

'James Thorn first visited Cyrene in 1981, whilst working as an archaeological illustrator fo Professor Donald White of Pennsylvania University recording architectural fragments discovered during excavation of the Demeter Sanctuary.', It was not until 1988 that Thorn returned to Cyrene, this time working alongside Professor Barri Jones (Manchester University) on a sponsered project to study the excavations of Alan Rowe in the 1950s.', u"From 1989 onwards Thorn worked to record all surviving artifacts in the necropolis to give a visual record, and to search for associated finds labels to enable Rowe's original register to be rebuilt through filling the gaps in the assemblages. This was then followed by the study of tombs and sarcophagi surveyed and excavated by Rowe.", Source: James Copland Thorn, "The Necropolis of Cyrene: Two Hundred Years of Exploration", (L\'erma di Bretschneider, 2005).'

"Includes correspondence, notes, publications, maps, plans, photographic material (photographs, slides, negatives and glass plate negatives), drawings and sketches, press cuttings, miscellaneous material and finds relating to Brogan's work and travels to Gergovia (France), Libya (notably including Ghirza), other north African countries and other non-African countries."

Arrangement

"Papers were arranged into series reflecting the main foci of Brogan's work (Gergovia, Ghirza and other Libyan sites), with supplementary series on Africa (Brogan visited other north African countries to broaden her knowledge and obtain comparative material) and non-African materials."

Custodian History

"The material was donated to the Society for Libyan Studies by Brogan's son Hugh c. 1990-1992. It was originally housed at Newcastle University, where it was packed into numbered files and boxes, with two copies of a rudimentary finding aid produced (noting main subject matter, format of material and sometimes rough dates). Following the material being moved to the University of Leicester (c. 2011), each box (and each file within the boxes) was given a new number and the contents noted (often with further information than previously), details being entered on to an Excel spreadsheet."

Biographical history

'Olwen Brogan was born Olwen Phillis Frances Kendall on 15 December 1900 in Holyhead. She was educated at Cheltenham Ladies College and University College London, where her first degree was in History. Her MA thesis was on the Roman Limes in Germany (supervised by Sir Mortimer Wheeler), and she went on to study the Tripolitanian limes. Following study she held lectureships in Minnesota and at University College London, marrying the historian Denis Brogan in 1931, with whom she had four children. She worked as Secretary of the Faculty of Archaeology, History and Letters of the British School at Rome and, during the 1930s participated in excavations at the hill fort reputed to be the site of Gergovia, near Clermont-Ferrand. During the Second World War she worked part-time for the Admiralty. Following the War she took part in excavations at Sabratha (under the auspices of the British School at Rome) with Kathleen Kenyon and Lepcis Magna with John Ward Perkins. She then went on to study (from 1952) the ancient site of Ghirza in the Tripolitanian desert, working primarily with David Smith (from 1955-7), in partnership with the Department of Antiquities of Tripolitania. This resulted in the publication "Ghirza: A Libyan Settlement in the Roman Period" (by Brogan and Smith), published in 1984. Brogan continued to visit Libya until the early 1980s. She was a founder member, first secretary and later Vice President of the Society for Libyan Studies. Following the death of Denis Brogan in 1974, Olwen married Charles Hackett and initially lived in Libya, in order to continue her work there, subsequently returning to live in England, where she died on 18 December 1989 in Cambridge.'
