Welcome to the Heritage Gazetteer of Libya, which is being developed by members of the Society for Libyan Studies, working with King's Digital Laboratory. Our aim is to record, and to provide with unique identifiers, locations and monuments within modern Libya which are of significance to the history of the area up to 1950; we are offering as many variant names as possible, together with geodata from various sources. The resultant identifiers (URI) can be read by a computer, and used by anyone recording heritage materials online. We hope that this resource will be useful for everyone interested in studying, or recording, the history of the country.
