Albanian and French Archaeologists: We are reaching into Illyrian housing area
 The suburbs of Durres is continuing to attract the archaeologists with its many assets. These days, a group of Albanian-French archaeologists have started digging near the Byzantine Forum, a monument of cultural heritage dating back to the V-VI centuries.

The Archaeologists are conducting studies on the Durrës topography of the ancient times, as during the last year's expedition under this monument came to light the murals and sewers belonging to a much earlier period, the Roman one.

"The houses here are probably damaged by fire or any violent destruction, such as earthquakes. We have more stratas of foreign civilizations here, this residential area can be extended until the first century but we can reach in discovering the Illyrian dwelling facilities. If we we will have time we may discover other archaic levels of civilization," Catherine Abadie Reynal said of University of Lyon, France.

The Forum, or Byzantine Bazaar Square was built in the traditional center of the ancient Dyrrachium, near the old neighborhood of Craftsmens in Durres. According to archaeologists, below the finds of fragments of Roman dwellings can be found traces of Hellenistic and Illyrian culture, as the Dyrrachium, at any time and after each destruction, has always been built on itself.
