In the spring of 2001 the hilly uplands immediately northwest of the modern city of Durres were for the first time investigated using the techniques of intensive surface survey. In total, an area of six square kilometers was explored and twenty-nine sites were defined, most of them new. Remains of Greek antiquity were plentiful and include unpublished inscriptions and graves. One site may be the location of a previously unknown Archaic temple. Included in this article are descriptions of the areas investigated, a list of sites, and a catalogue of the most diagnostic artifacts recovered. Patterns of settlement and land use are discussed and compared to those recorded by other surveys in Albania.
This compressed file contains the GIS files used for the DRAP project in shape file format. There is a Documentation folder with a ReadMe file that contains information about opening the documents as well as notes on their creation and conversion.
There is a file included that will allow opening all of the files in ArcMap (v 10.1 tested) and QGIS (v 2.4 tested) but the data files themselves can be opened in whatever GIS software one chooses that can read ESRI shape file format.
