Full text unavailable from EThOS. This thesis investigates the potential of using terrestrial molluscs for radiocarbon dating of archaeological sediments. The sequence at the Haua Fteah, Cyrenaica, in Libya provides a case study. Two strands of study were undertaken as part of the ERC funded Cyrenaica Prehistory Project: the examination of the present day radiocarbon ecology of species in the region; and an analysis of archaeological shell from the Haua Fteah cave with the aim of developing a high-resolution chronology for the upper portions of the site.

To complete their profiles, they answered the site’s boilerplate questions, such as “How much of your face do you cover? On the site, the revolutionaries used poetry laced with revolutionary references to gauge support and make initial contact.
