Abstract

In the research on Greek fortifications, the traditional approach applied in the past has been addressed to mere polyorcetic considerations, neglecting their relevance in the management of the settlement systems within the territorial states of the Hellenistic Mediterranean. The application of a landscape approach to urban and rural fortifications analysis in chosen study area of central Mediterranean (Albania, southern Italy, Sicily) allows us to understand their multifaceted functions within the political, cultural and military system of Hellenistic kingdoms, and their relationship to the organization of rural production and viability.
