French historian, founder of the Encyclopédie berbère and considered a prestigious scholar in Berber historical studies.
Gabriel Camps studied the pre-Roman epochs of North Africa, but also the Berber kingdoms, the African tribes, the Libyan scripts, and the Punic world. Most of this work focussed on Berber history and in 1984 he was the founder and first editor-in-chief of the "Encyclopédie berbère," launched under the aegis of UNESCO.
The biggest part of Camps's research was done in Algeria, although he worked also in Corsica.
He died on 7 September 2002.
