Geophysical technique of 2-D electrical imaging has been used to explore the archaeological features along a part of ancient ViaEgnatia road. With the use of geoelectrical survey, a 200x160m area has been explored using detailed 2-D resistivity measurements. Two tomogaphic profiles 100m long were carried out in order to detect parts of ancient road axis. The main objective of the project was the exploration of buried archeological features and the possibility of existence of any segment of ViaEgnatia Road. This work has been carried out in cooperation with Institute of Archaeology of Albania, which determined the area to be surveyed. The methodology used, consisted in resistivity mapping using the Electrical Resistance Tomography (ERT) technique, thus obtaining resistivity contour maps at different depths. Geoelectrical data has been collected by staff of Geophysical Center of Tirana, Albania during the year 2005. Geophysical Department of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, gave the appropriate help in data interpretation.
