It presented examples of aerial photogrammetry surveys conducted by means of drones in the Albanian Drino Valley, Valona Region, in the Hellenistic sites of Hadrianopolis, Jergucat, Frashtan and Antigonea. The surveys were carried out in the framework of the project ReBeD of Macerata's University  - organiser of the workshop together with the Italian Institute of Culture - for the documentation and promotion of the Drino valley's cultural heritage.
