The Sanctuary of Apollo in Cyrene

The project aims at studying a time and a place in the history of the Mediterranean that has not received the attention it deserves.

To many, urbanisation appears to be an irreversible force, a tale of the triumph of the city and the degradation of the countryside to a productive unit.
