Session 2: Maritime and Coastal Geoarchaeology

Description

Geoarchaeology is defined as the geosciences and geographical methods and techniques applied to Prehistory, Archaeology, and History. Geoarchaeology in an open-minded way and from an interdisciplinary point of view. It is generally acknowledged that it is necessary to take the landscape and environmental dynamics into account to reconstitute a complete history of societies and to study the interaction between humans and their environment.

This session aims to present new geoarchaeological surveys and new methods and techniques in coastal environments and tends to highlight the geomorphological processes with human occupation, to identify climate variability impacts. It will also present the latest research findings on geoarchaeological approaches, giving evidence for paleogeographical changes, ecosystem and geomorphological changes that affected regional archaeology. The paleogeographical reconstruction and the visualization of the landscape evolution, using geo-informatics, will be one of the highlight of this session.
