Managing Libya's Cultural Heritage (MaLiCH)

The cities Ghadames, Sabratha, and Leptis Magna are inscribed on the World Heritage List and were placed on the World Heritage in Danger List in 2016. Kings College London is collaborating with the Libyan Department of Antiquities to protect them through training in heritage protection, emergency stabilization and management planning.

The desert city of Ghadames and the ancient Roman cities of Sabratha and Leptis Magna are inscribed on the World Heritage List, testament to Libya's archaeological significance. However, due to conflict, these sites were placed on the UNESCO list of World Heritage in Danger in 2016. Kings College London is collaborating with the Libyan Department of Antiquities to protect them through training in heritage protection, emergency stabilization and management planning.
