Hills of Mallakastra
Apollonia, Albania
Since 1998, American and Albanian archaeologists have collaborated in a large, international, interdisciplinary field project at the site of Apollonia. Apollonia was a colony established in 588 BC by the Greeks in the territory of the indigenous Illyrian peoples. The primary goal of the Mallakastra Regional Archaeological Project (MRAP) is to better understand how and to what extent the Greeks and Illyrians might have interacted.
To this end, more than 30 square kilometers have been surveyed in the vicinity of Apollonia and several sites have been test excavated. To learn more about the results of the Mallakastra Regional Archaeological Project, read the field reports available at the project's website.
Each summer since 1999, Millsaps College students have accompanied Dr. Michael Galaty, MRAP's field director, to Albania. Typically, these students have first completed one of the College's archaeological field schools.
