The desert city of Ghadames and the ancient Roman cities of Sabratha and Leptis Magna are inscribed on the World Heritage List, testament to Libya's archaeological significance. However, due to conflict, these sites were placed on the UNESCO list of World Heritage in Danger in 2016. King's College London is collaborating with the Libyan Department of Antiquities to protect them through training in heritage protection, emergency stabilization and management planning.
