TitleG.D.B. "Barri" Jones and John B. Ward Perkins Papers.
DescriptionCorrespondence, notes, photographs, slides, plans, maps, and sketches primarily relating to expeditions led by Ward Perkins to Lepcis Magna in the late 1940s and early 1950s. However, the collection also features material relating to other Libyan and North African sites.

The collection primarily consists of the photographs and records of John Ward Perkins. Many of his records have been arranged into files by the creator of the records. Where possible, these files have been maintained intact in order to preserve any additional context they may add to the collection. There is also material present created by other prominent archaeologists and academics including G.D.B. Jones, Philip Kenrick, Francis Maddison and Gareth Slater.

Much of the collection appears to have accumulated with the purpose of compiling the monograph John Ward Perkins, G.D.B. Jones (ed.) and Philip Kenrick (ed.), "The Severan Buildings of Lepcis Magna, an Architectural Survey," (Society for Libyan Studies, 1993).
