Summary My PhD research is looking at the transformation of settlement and economy in Cyrenaica from the 7th to 10/12th c., a period which spans from the Late Byzantine era into the first centuries of the Arab occupation. This research is important as no synthetic work on the Islamic occupation of Cyrenaica has ever been carried out while the Libyan government has never had a complete catalogue of all the archaeological sites and monuments in the landscape, especially for the Islamic period. My research aims to fill this gap by looking at the continuity and change of Cyrenaica immediately before and after the Arab conquest.
