This article briefly outlines each period in the History of Albania; details are presented in separate articles (see the links in the box and below).Most scholars consider that Albanians are direct descendants of an Illyrian tribe that was named "Albanoi," which was located in modern-day Albania. Some scholars dispute this while others claim that Albanians and Illyrians are descendants of the ancient Pelasgians, making their history go back at least 4,000 years before Christ.Those who support the Illyrian-Albanian continuity theory maintain that all Illyrian tribes, except the Albanians, disappeared during the Early Middle Ages after the waves of migrating barbarians. A formidable mountain homeland and resilient tribal society enabled the Albanians to survive into modern times with their identity and their Indo-European language intact. According to these scholars, the name 'Albania' is derived from the name of an Illyrian tribe called the Arber, or Arbereshë, and later Albanoi, that lived near Durrës.
