DescriptionField notes, publication material, photographs, small finds, maps and plans pertaining to archaeological fieldwork carried out in Tunisia as part of the Brathay expedition of 1962.

The expedition was directed to the making of a gazetteer of the numerous olive farming settlements in the area of the Roman town of Sufetula, forerunner of the modern Sbeitla. During the expedition "a number of other sites of other periods were found including several of Neolithic dates, and one producing flints of Aterian (Paleolithic) type" (Addyman, 1962).

Most of the material in the collection relates to Sbeitla, although there are some small find fragments present from Ammaedara, Haidra in Tunisia.

The collection also features records which relate to Addyman's report on the 1962 season of fieldwork which was published in the annual report of the Brathay Exploration Group. These include offprints, drafts pages and photographs.
