Halaq Al Reeh - The Story of a Social Revolution
Book Review by Ghazi Gheblawi of A novel by Salih Senoussi
(Dar Al Helal 2002 - Cairo (159 pages)

This is the story of social evolution, it tells us how we came to be what we are now, and why we face the world the way we do. It is the story of Halaq Al Reeh, which can be literally translated as ‘The Wind Valley’, and the people who dwell this mythical land.

Tolmeitha (Formerly Ptolémaïs)
Libya: Archaeology and Civilisation (Part 12)

Libya is the undiscovered gold mine of North Africa. It was once known as the breadbasket of Rome, and dotted all along the coast between Tobruk and Tripoli are some of the most spectacular and unspoiled Roman ruins in the world.
Apollonia: The City of Churches
Libya: Archaeology and Civilisation (Part 11)

CYRENE was not the only city-state to be built by the Greeks during the hey-day of their empire and their years across the Mediterranean in Libya. In spite of human ravages and natural disasters, most of the monuments of Cyrene have nonetheless survived.
Drops of Horror: First Horror Movie to be Produced in Libya

Acropolis at Cyrene Most Important Reminder to A Past Civilisation
Libya: Archaeology and Civilisation (Part 10)

City Ruins of Libya Reveal Exciting Examples of Art, Culture of Ancient Times
Libya: Archaeology and Civilisation (Part 9)

The development of Sabratha continued until some time after the fall of the Roman Empire, although the city was never again to reach either the importance of the splendour it had radiated during the first and the second centuries.

Libya: Archaeology and Civilisation (Part 8)

Today, the site of the ruins of Sabratha is strewn with pillars and arches, and sturdy Roman foundation are largely all that has remained of structures which must have been so terribly imposing in the past.
Testimonial to the Past Culture and Civilisation of the Region
Libya: Archaeology and Civilisation (Part 7)

Lying a few kilometres to the west of what is today the bustling city of Tripoli, Sabratha, like Leptis Magna knows its origin to the Phoenicians. However, once the Romance had comfortably settled in North Africa they rebuilt the city and turned it into one of the more important trading settlements of the region.
Sabratha - A Metropolis of Almost Equal Splendour to Leptis Magna
(Series of features about Archaeology and Civilisation - Part 6)

In the past few weeks we dealt at length with perhaps the best known of the Roman remains in Libya, the city of Leptis Magna, which lies to the east of Tripoli along the North African littoral. But this is not the only reminder of Libya’s ancient civilisation under the Romans. To the west of Tripoli, the ancient sister city of Leptis, and a metropolis of almost equal resplendence also thrusts its ruins to the sky not far from the area where Libya borders with Tunisia, the ancient city of Sabratha, which lies about sixty kilometres from the Libyan capital, Tripoli.
An American at Leptis: Libya’s Rich history and Proud People Are its Greatest Assets
I have had the honour to visit Libya for business several times this past year. Each trip has opened my eyes to wonderful new things. Fortunately, I have been able to find time to explore parts of this magnificent country at the heart of the Mediterranean. Now that relations are beginning to thaw between Libya and The Unit-ed States, I hope more of my fellow countrymen are able to visit so they too can experience Libya's rich history.
Great Feats of Engineering At Leptis
(Series of features about Archaeology and Civilisation - Part 5)

The Roman presence in North Africa is considered by many historians to have represented a period of great development and progress. This opinion is based on the fact that, at that time, the Roman cities of the day themselves represented an undeniable example of Roman architectural and engineering skills. This is particularly true at the city that had once been the fabled Leptis Magna and which today lays in ruins along the North African littoral, east of Tripoli.
REMSA takes time out! Thanks Its Employees, Their Families
The new Hotel and leisure complex Dar Tellile was the venue chosen by Repsol Exploration Murzuq S.A. to gather all employees with families for a fun and social activity recently.

Amount of Plunder By Victors and Vanquished Impossible to Access
(Series of features about Archaeology and Civilisation-Part 4)
For a lingering period of time Leptis Magna was to serve a purpose vastly different from its previous role as a centre for trade. As the Arab conquest of North Africa continued, the city was turned into a military stronghold from which the fierce attacks by nomadic tribesmen were met and, more often than not, successfully contained.
My Tripoli Local is Better than My England Local!
When I first returned to Tripoli from England in the early 90's I was very disappointed to find that bakeries were still in the 'command economy age'. “Take it or leave it”, seemed to be the motto and 'be grateful for what you get' was the attitude. But I am now very happy to say - as do most my ex-pat friends – that Tripoli today offers one of the best bakeries in the region.
