I decided to officially archive this blog on the day my DPhil was confirmed. But I have waited for the electronic publication of my thesis, Interrogating Archaeological Ethics in Conflict Zones: Cultural Heritage Work in Cyprus, to announce the archiving. From now on, I will blog at Conflict Antiquities.

Ferizaj archaeological deposits in the process of formation.

[Updated on the 14th of January 2007]

Vasilevs commented that, 'Its about the name of city "Ferizaj". Ferizaj were been a albanian fashist during the WWII.He killed many cristians (mostly Serbs).' As with Vasilevs' other comments, I can't verify this. According to Wikipedia, at least, its 'Albanian name derives from a pre-1873 hotel owned by a local Kosovo Albanian named Feriz Shashivari', so, it's not a new name and not given or taken with any reference to the Ferizaj who Vasilevs speaks about; so, it's not about the name of the city. It would only be about the name of the city if this person took his name from it, but I have no evidence for that either.

Ruined and dumped upon Ferizaj land; bordering buildings' walls have murals painted on them.
