During the excavations for the construction of the Palace of Culture in Saranda at depths of over 1 m, traces of a mosaic were discovered. There are systematic archaeological excavations that have brought to light the ruin of buildings of interest belonging to the early Middle Ages. These ruins, when we consider the ramparts of the medieval fortress, are related to constructions within it.
From the last excavations, it is clear that in the totality of the buildings there is also a three-storey mosaic pavement building. The central anthropic mosaic is interrupted by the construction on it in modern times of the motorway, etc. as a result of the southern meteoric mosaic that we must find perhaps covered and damaged. While the north aniata presents rather damaging mosaic fragments but showing interest in signs of an earlier mosaic underneath it.
Mosaics generally appear damaged by structural changes due to water infiltrations. So, they appear in frequent gatherings that create unpleasant perspectives for the visitor. Technically, the construction of a mosaic stands in the footsteps of time, with stones cut out about 1 cm of cubic inches on a layer of mortar (lime, tile and fine sand).”
