ArMedEa project : archaeology of medieval earthquakes in Europe (1000-1550 AD). First research activities.

Forlin, Paolo and Gerrard, Christopher and Petley, David (2015) 'ArMedEa project : archaeology of medieval earthquakes in Europe (1000-1550 AD). First research activities.', Miscellanea INGV., 27 . pp. 166-169.


This paper introduces the research of the Armedea project. Armedea (Archaeology of medieval earthquakes in Europe, 1000-1550 AD) is a medieval archaeology project undertaken at the Department of Archaeology of Durham University which analyses archaeological evidence related to late medieval seismic-affected contexts at a European scale. This project is therefore focused on both earthquake effects on archaeological sites, their standing buildings and environment, and the archaeological evidence that reveals the response of medieval societies in terms of risk reduction, protection and resilience. A first preview of GIS analysis of seismic activity impact on medieval societies and fieldwork activities carried out in Italy, Cyprus and Azores (Portugal) is presented here. This research is supported by a Marie Curie Intra European Fellowship within the 7th European Community Framework Programme.
