Archaeological excavations in Durrës reveal traces of an indoor swimming

Archaeological excavations at the school site "Gjergj Kastrioti, Durres" have brought new discoveries of ancient Durres. The National Institute of Cultural Heritage informs that the excavations in this phase have given us a special panorama of the urban organism of the area, where we are probably dealing with a part of the city where the elite layers of society lived. According to the IKTK, this consists of buildings with a recently developed architecture and the coming to light of the trace of an indoor swimming pool of a villa of the Roman period, the first of its kind discovered by archaeological excavations in Albania, which is decorated on its entire surface with colorful frescoes of a high artistic level. "The uniqueness of this structure lies in its floor laid with a very well-preserved mosaic, with geometric motifs, made with marble, stone, glass and ceramic tesserae. In the vicinity of the swimming pool, a hydraulic monument consisting of two shallow tubs covered with waterproofing mortar was discovered", says IKTK. Located these days in Durrës for the archaeological rescue excavations, archaeologist Luan Perzhita says that in the coming days they will continue throughout the territory there. "In addition to the mosaic, which is something that has not yet been discovered in our cities, it is also the covering of this pool with frescoes that naturally gave a look to this building, building, which has extraordinary colors. But the exact dating that we have received so far when we have the earthquake of the fourth century is also important. We have found many ruins that are from this period and some coins have been discovered that speak of the fourth century when this event took place. In the following days, excavations will continue in the entire territory, which is 1200 square meters", says Perzhita.

Discoveries in the northern and western part of the construction site

In the northern part of the excavation site, a large brick floor was discovered which may be the floor of a thermae, considering comparisons with similar constructions of the period in the Mediterranean. Also following the IKTK, several lines of walls related to the architectural complex discovered in this sector have been identified. "The considerable height of their preservation suggests that this monument may have been built with two floors. Of great interest are the discoveries in the western part, where we would highlight fragments of the decoration of the walls and ceilings of the villa, made with stucco with different, anthropomorphic and floral motifs. Even here there are traces of the fresco. From the excavation, the drainage channel for rainwater built with ceramic tiles was also identified", it is stated in the IKTK material. According to IKTK, the archaeological findings place us in the period of the 1st-4th centuries AD with the peak of the development of the monument in the 1st-2nd centuries AD. Archaeologists believe that this villa was destroyed by the earthquake of the 4th century AD, which is mentioned in ancient sources. .
