TitleJohn Riley Papers.
DescriptionCollection relates to John A. Riley's work on the coarse ware of Cyrenaica. The collection includes a variety of media including correspondence, catalogues, notebooks, articles and papers, thin sections, clippings and photographs.

The records primarily relate to expeditions to Cyrenaica during the 1970s and excavations carried out at a number of Cyrenaican sites including Ajdabiyah, Apollonia, Benghazi, Berenice, Cyrene, Jalo, Medina es Sultan, Ptolemais, Selmani, Sidi Khrebish, Tauchira [Tocra] and Tolmeita. However, material relating to sites outside of Cyrenaica and Libya is also present within the collection, mostly for comparison purposes.

The findings of these expeditions eventually resulted in "Excavations at Sidi Khrebish Benghazi (Berenice): Volume II" (Tripoli, 1985) and there is a significant amount of correspondence and photographs relating to this publication.
