Abstract

Physical anthropology as a discipline began relatively late in Albania, after the Second World War. As with all other disciplines which arose and developed during this period, physical anthropology was based on Marxist theory, summarized by Engels as a science which made it possible to understand the transition from the morphology and physiology of the human being and its races to history. Central to anthropological studies became the issue of the ethnogenesis of the Albanian people.
