Libyan Archaeology Authority launches search for lost ancient city of Barca

According to history textbooks, Barca city was there before the arrival of the Greeks to Libya.

The survey process will start in the old Al-Marij city.

The Head of the Libyan Archaeology Authority, Ahmed Hussein, said the project was launched in cooperation with the municipality of Al-Marij after they signed an agreement with Prof. Anna Leon, from Durham University in England that would see the training of a team of Libyan archaeologists.

"They will be trained to use the cutting-edge archaeology surveying technologies and the geophysical survey. After the training, the authority will receive the high-tech equipment", Hussein explained.

He added that this survey is a crucial step on the way of finding an important epoch in the history of the ancient Libyans.

"Another survey will be launched in the central region and the surveying process of the Western Mountain region will also be resumed once the budget is ready." The Head of the Libyan Archaeology Authority remarked.
