Three more sites with stilts, on the shore of Lake Ohrid, have been added to the archaeological discoveries in the field of Korça.

According to the Albanian archaeologist Ardian Anastasi, three stilt sites have been discovered on the shore of the lake, which are thought to have existed around 5200 years before Christ.

In order to accurately determine the age, the Swiss archaeologist who is working together with his Albanian colleagues, has informed the prefect of the Korçë district, Nertil Jole, that the results of the laboratory analyzes are expected from the University of Oxford in England.

From the samples of the soil structure, taken from the excavations in the three sites, it is expected to determine the age of these houses erected on wooden poles, in coastal areas, in order to protect them from floods or wild animals.

Archaeologists believe that the data proving the elements of very early agriculture in the field near the lake, which they have also called “the first farmers of Europe”, is being confirmed, a fact which testifies to the ancient traces of our existence.

“It is inspiring to see the passion of Albanian archaeologists from Albania and Kosovo, as well as those from Switzerland”, says prefect Jole.

Archaeologists are working in the field with a joint project funded by the Swiss government in cooperation with the Institute of Archeology in Tirana, for the discovery of wooden-stilt houses on the shore of Lake Ohrid, near the village of Buqezë.

This project started in the summer of 2019 and ends in 2025.

Such research, in addition to arousing curiosity, also gives a positive echo for unique prehistoric attractions in the Korçë region.
