COAST, MOUNTAIN, PLAIN: RESULTS FROM A THREE-PROJECT TRANSECT ACROSS NORTHERN ALBANIA AND INTO KOSOVA
Michael Galaty - Director and Curator of European Archaeology at U-M's Museum of Anthropological Archaeology; Professor, Department of Anthropology and also Department of Classical Studies at the University of Michigan
Wednesday, March 22, 2023
Over the course of two decades, Galaty and colleagues have conducted systematic intensive surveys, site collections, and test excavations across northern Albania and western Kosova. Projects in Shkoder close to the sea, in Shala in the high mountains, and in Peja and Istog on the Dukagjin Plain shed new light on local archaeological records, from prehistory to the present, and on inter-regional interactions. This presentation will review and compare the results of all three research projects, in particular in terms of shifting settlement patterns, and with a focus on changes in social organization, from the Neolithic through the Iron Age.
