Professor Richard Hodges, President of The American University of Rome, has been working at the World Heritage site of Butrint in southern Albania for the last 20 years. He has now produced a set of interwoven reflections about the archaeology and cultural heritage history of the site where major excavations and a multi-volume series of accompanying scientific publications have made it a key location for our developing understanding of the Roman and Medieval Mediterranean.
In The Archaeology of Mediterranean Placemaking: Butrint and the Global Heritage Industry Professor Hodges considers how the Butrint Foundation protected and enhanced Butrint’s spirit of place for future generations.
