Kosovo archaeologists discovered an imperial residence

Prishtina, 29 September – Kosovo archaeologists have discovered a building with very large perimeter during archaeological excavations in Dresnik, municipality of Klina. The ruins discovered so far give the indication that the monument dates back from IV-V centuries and is considered to be very special, not only in Kosovo, also beyond.

According to preliminary data, the archaeologists believe that it is an ancient imperial residency. Excavations of this year have complemented data on municipium or the ancient town near Klina.

Archaeologist Masar Valla, jointly with other archaeologist, Elvis Shala, lead the Dresnik excavations, stated that they have encountered a new mosaic surface in apse near the central hall, respectively near already discovered colourful mosaic in 2013.

“It is not entirely excavated. We have highlighted only one part. The building is of IV-V century. It is about 100 meters away from the building with mosaic. However, this building is believed to have served as residential part of the town," stated Valla. Based on the preliminary archaeological data, it should not exclude the possibility  that this newly discovered part belongs to a residential building, stated the Archaeologist, Elvis Shala.
