Project Details

Description (abstract)

This project focuses on the landscape along the two main routes leading from important port Durrës in Albania towards the southeast. The aim of the project is to establish cultural and ethnic changes that are documented through cultural remains, settlement patterns and demographic trajectories, as well as economic and social developments. We intend to clarify how, through the centuries, the local people profited by living on the border between different cultural, political and economic zones, and how they adapted to external influences, thereby creating new hybrid cultures.
