Photographer's Note

Buthrotum was an ancient Greek and later Roman city in Epirus. In modern times it is an archeological site in Sarandė District, Albania, some 14 kilometres south of Sarandė and close to the Greek border. It is located on a hill overlooking the Vivari Channel and part of the Butrint National Park. Inhabited since prehistoric times, Buthrotum was a city of the Greek tribe of the Chaonians, later a Roman colony and a bishopric. It entered into decline in Late Antiquity, before being abandoned during the Middle Ages after a major earthquake flooded most of the city. It is one of Albanian UNESCO WHS.
