Materia in the Material World of Butrint: Wooden Remains from the Roman Forum

Master's Thesis


Discovered several meters below the Roman Forum, the wooden remains shed light on Butrint’s early history, between the 7th century B.C. and the Augustan period. This study discusses uses for wood in antiquity and available technologies, tools, and land use in Butrint. A catalogue contains the data gathered from analysis of every natural and worked wooden artifact excavated at Butrint.
