Hydrogeomorphic Risk Analysis Affecting Chalcolithic by Ionut Cristi Nicu

By Ionut Cristi Nicu

This ebook provides a balanced mix of sensible and theoretical features of geoarchaeology. to take action, it gathers all of the parts of a normal framework (geology, aid, hydrography, weather, soils, flowers and fauna), that have been analyzed from an archaeological standpoint. whereas globally this can be a hugely built and researched region, regrettably in Romania it truly is nonetheless a principally overlooked box of analysis, as restricted cash can be found.  However, the rustic has an important power and foreign researchers have utilized geoarchaeological tools and strategies and released ends up in various journals.

The degradation of those settlements is the most middle of the paintings, with illustrative case reviews providing insights into the typical and, at times, anthropic results at the sites.
