Dr Adel El-Turki, a visiting researcher in the Interface Analysis Centre, appears in next Monday's episode of the BBC Four documentary series 'The Treasures of Ancient Rome' showing presenter Alastair Sooke around mosaics and wall paintings in Leptis Magna, Libya which have never been filmed before.
The programme charts the decline and fall of the Roman Empire through some of its hidden and most magical artistic treasures. Sooke visited Leptis Magna shortly after the overthrow of Gaddafi to explore one of the best preserved Roman cities in the world and the cradle of later Roman art.
