This volume brings together a collection of reports and essays pertaining to the Butrint Foundation project at Butrint, Albania. It includes unpublished archive reports discovered in Rome and Tirana, commentaries on their methodology and history, as well as several new fieldwork reports arising from research made or supported by the Butrint Foundation. Together with other volumes published in the Butrint Foundation series, it makes this Adriatic Sea port and its hinterland one of the most intensively published coastal littorals in the Mediterranean region, the so-called Corrupting Sea.
