abstract

This is a study and edition of Ottoman Inscriptions in Southern Albania, defined as the area between Valona and the Greek border. During the last years, many new inscriptions (mainly tombstones) have been discovered by foreign and local researchers. Known inscriptions from literature (Evliya Çelebi and others) have been added here to these new discovered inscriptions. 25 inscriptions from the year 1542 BCE until 1897 BCE from the region are published here as part of the Corpus of Ottoman Inscriptions in Albania. The inscriptions are studied in their historical and cultural context. They contain information about building activities and the life and culture of the Ottoman centuries of Albania.
