Field Research

Here you can find all the excavations and field survey campaigns of the Butrint Project.

From 2015 to 2017, the Team was involved only in the topographic and photogrammetric survey of Butrint: starting from the theatre, the shrine and temple of Asclepius (2015 and 2016) to the Hellenistic and Medieval wall circuit going from the Lake Gate to the Lion Gate (2017).

From 2018, these activities were combined with excavations, first in a portion of the filling of the Hellenistic and Medieval wall circuit between the Tower Gate and the Roman Forum (2018) and later on the Acropolis (2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023).

Wide relevance is also given to landscape archaeology in the wider territory of ancient Chaonia with survey campaigns in the Pavla and Bistrica Rivers Valleys (2022, 2023) and along the Ionian coast near Porto Palermo (2023).
