Ervin Kujtila


In this study I have made a presentation of the Valsh fortification, which together with other fortifications of the Shkumbini valley constitutes a very advanced fortification system. The idea of this study came as a result of the doctoral studies I am attending. This study provides new data on the Shkumbini valley fortification system as well as on the topographic survey and layout of the fortification walls. In this study the current state of fortification is clearly presented and the role it has played in relation to the surrounding area and beyond.

Keywords: Archeology, Fortification, Bronze age, Survey, Archaeological Excavation, Potery, Prehistory.
