During the fighting in Libya, there was concern over the fate of the country's historical treasures.

Most seem to have survived intact, including the jewel in the crown, Leptis Magna, the ancient Roman city on the Mediterranean.

The BBC went to visit and was shown around by a man who has lived there his whole life.
