Susan Abugrara

Archaeologist; Dept. of Antiquities


Susan holds a Bachelor degree in Archaeology from the University of Padova (Italy) and a Master's degree in Archaeology from the University of Leicester (UK). Her research interests are North African urbanisation in Phoenician and Roman eras, funerary archaeology and Libyan heritage in general.


At the Department, she is a founding member of a team of experts that promote good conservation practices and digitization of the archaeological archives. She is also a consultant for the National Historical Archive of Libya and UNESCO. In April 2021 she started a PhD at the University of Durham and her research project focuses on the urban development and transformation of ancient Oea (Tripoli) from the Phoenician to the early Islamic period. With this research, she hopes to reconstruct in a diachronic way the archaeological landscape of the city, redressing the imbalance in the information we have compared to its late medieval and early modern history.
