The study of coastal and lowland landscapes is a challenge for archaeology, as the high geomorphological dynamicity of such ecosystems often limits archaeological research in these areas. The Ravenna Landscape Project systematically investigates the hinterland of Ravenna (northern Italy), a major Roman and Medieval city that developed over time in a complex, marginal landscape. The project presented here aims to offer a way forward to overcome the limits represented by complex geomorphological dynamics and introduce new approaches to studying the local landscape. The lecture will consider the latest results of the project, focusing in particular on the methodologies applied as well as the main goals achieved.

This HYBRID event will be held in in person at the School of Education Room 2327 Brownlee Room, and also livestreamed via Zoom at link:
