2004, MA, University of Cincinnati, Arts and Sciences : Classics.
This thesis examines the earliest inhabited settlements of the hinterland of the Greek colony at Apollonia (Albania) during the Protourban period (ca. 700 – 450 B.C). The areas of Myzeqe and Mallakastra are the geographical focus of this detailed analysis. The first chapter concentrates on the discussion of the physical landscape of these areas, and the history of archaeological research. The second chapter consists of the list of sites that are discussed in this thesis. Their fortifications, domestic architecture, and pottery are analyzed. In the third chapter a discussion of the inter-settlement and intra-settlement levels is made. The lack of burials near the native sites is noted. Trade in the hinterland of Apollonia, and appearances of imported pottery, namely Corinthian and Ionian are discussed. The fourth chapter is a survey of burial rites at Apollonia and the factors that may have influenced the Greeks to adopt the rite of tumuli.
