Abstract

This article provides an update on the work the “Endangered Archaeology in the Middle East and North Africa” (EAMENA) project has conducted in Libya over the last year. It also introduces a new project, the “Maritime Endangered Archaeology” (MarEA) which was established in partnership with EAMENA. Both, EAMENA and MarEA, focus on mapping, recording and monitoring archaeological sites across multiple MENA countries, including Libya. Both projects aim to provide tools for remote mapping, interpreting and recording archaeological sites that will prove useful in capacity building in the MENA region. Between November 2017 and March 2019, three, two-week long EAMENA-Cultural Protection Fund training workshops took place in Tunis (Tunisia), in which 20 Libyan archaeologists and heritage professionals took part.
