Book: The Archaeology of Stari Bar
Chapter: 6. The War, Independence and the End of a Town
This chapter concludes the urban trajectory of the city with a detailed analysis of the war of liberation which coincided with the demise of the city within the walls and the shift of settlement focus to the coast. This transfer is evident in the renewed functions of the port and in western (including Italian) investment here in the first half of the 20th century.
