This work on the fortifications of Butrint which here appears for the first time in English is one of the single most significant archaeological discourses produced on Butrint during the communist era in Albania (1945-91). It encapsulates perfectly the political and historical paradigm within which the author was obliged to operate, and highlights the theme of ethnic, cultural and social continuity from the ancient Illyrians to modern Albanians. Updated with new illustrations, the book is an important contribution to an on-going debate about castles and fortifications in the Balkans.
