Gheriat el-Garbia Roman Fort

Gheriat el-Garbia Roman Fort


Al Qaryah al Gharbiyah, Libya (LY)
The fort measured about c.185x135 m (24,800 m²), or double the size of the Bu Njem fort. The corners are directed to the four quarters of the compass. On the platform was a small well. Archaeologists have also identified cisterns in the northern corner of the ancient fort. The outer walls are almost entirely preserved, but the buildings inside did not survive. Berbers have reused them.
