Society For Libyan Studies

I am looking forward to speaking to the Society for Libyan Studies about Anglo-Libyan relations in the 20th century. One of my discoveries was the map below that reveals how Field Marshal Herbert Kitchener became involved in the long-standing dispute about the Libyan frontier with Egypt. I will also tell the tale of the roller-coaster ride from the policy of non-intervention to the post-war British administration that found itself looking after a devastated and impoverished country and how all this changed after oil was discovered in the Libyan desert.

Details of the event on Tuesday 29 March at 5 p.m. can be found on their website: https://societyforlibyanstudies.org/event/anglo-libyan-relations-in-the-20th-century-by-rupert-wieloch/
