I studied archaeology and anthropology at Cambridge University, back in the ’60s, before doing fieldwork in Cyrenaica, when I traced the main water supply of ancient Ptolemais from its source to the city’s cisterns.

Footnotes, The New Millennium Press 1994 (Travel pieces)

The Tulip Garden and Other Stories, Stamford House Publishing (2003)

Cappadocian Moon and Other Stories, Melrose Books (2007)
