Archaeological research in the Matohasanai fortress within the Archaeological

The Archaeological Landscape Project in the Memaliaj-Tepelen area aims to expand the map of monuments. In the framework of the Archaeological Landscapes project, archaeological research is being carried out in the Matohasanaya fortress. The project, a collaboration between the Institute of Archeology (Albanian Academy of Sciences) and Sweet Briar College University, USA, with co-directors Sabina Veseli and Erin Pitt, is focused on survey and research in the Matohasanaya fortress and its surroundings, using the type methodology Lidar and the design of an integrated and georeferenced plan of the settlement. This is reported by the Regional Cultural Directorate of Gjirokastra, which states that the excavations carried out so far have also brought to light a building. "Which in terms of plan and construction technique seems to have a public character", says DRTK. In cooperation with the Regional Directorate of Cultural Heritage Gjirokastër, which manages the fort, the project that is being developed aims to expand the map of the monuments of the Tepelena area. The archaeological research that is being carried out within this project is a continuation of other projects that the Institute of Archeology is developing in our country in cooperation with foreign universities. Following its activity in the field of archaeology, the Institute of Archeology in our country was involved step by step in a broad research activity by organizing cooperation projects with sister universities and institutions of western countries. The multi-year excavation projects combined the experiences of Albanian archaeologists with those of archaeologists and specialists from countries such as England, France, USA, Italy, Greece, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Israel and Poland in research for all fields of archeology such as prehistory, antiquity and the Middle Ages.  

Matohasanai Castle  

The ancient castle of Matohasanai is located on the top of a rocky ridge, which rises in the center of the Sinanaj valley, between the bed of the river Vjosa and the mountain of Griba. The castle of Matohasanai belongs to the c. V person and there are traces of the continuation of life in almost every subsequent period. The walls of the castle surround an area of ??about 3 ha, an area consisting of rows of terraces suitable for living. On the West and North-East sides there are no walls due to the terrain, as the ridge of the hill is steep and impassable. The layout of the castle is simple, where we have only one entrance through the tower on the south side, next to it there are two other towers, one round and the other square; the lines of the walls are long and straight, they take turns depending on the terrain. The surrounding walls belong to three different periods of construction, the first two periods represent the Antiquity period in this city, while the third period of construction represents Late Antiquity.
