Launch of the book "The Archeology of Mediterranean Placemaking"

On January 17, 2017, at the premises of Spencer House was held the promotion of the book "The Archeology of Mediterranean Placemaking", by Richard Hodges, President of the American University of Rome. The book is entirely devoted to specific values that ​​represent the Butrint archaeological site, as well as to the special contribution that is given to this archaeological site by the Rothschild family in terms of its international promotion.
Present at this promotion, Ambassador Qirko thanked Professor Hodges for his work and this new contribution on promoting specific values of the ancient city of Butrint. Also, he expressed the gratitude of the Albanian government to the Rothschild family for the special contribution towards the inclusion of the ancient city of Butrint on the map of the most important ancient cities of the region, as well as for the financial contribution towards the recognition of its values, given the fact that only last year Butrint archaeological site was visited by over 200,000 visitors.
In course of promotion, Ambassador Qirko had a long conversation with Lord Jacob Rothschild, during which they discussed on further commitments related to the Butrint Foundation and in other areas of the economy.
