Abstract

The problem of how to recognise seismic collapse lies at the basis of the possibility of using archaeological
sources in the rield of historical seismology. Hitherto this problem has been approached in an arbitraiy and
subjectile manner, because there exists no systematic collection of data which permits access to a specific series
of case histories in the field of archaeological collapse, distinguishing their numerous causes. The problein
is also posed because archaeological techniques are by nature ~destructivena, nd important seismic traces may
disappear and no longer be utilizable in the scientific sphere. The authors point our this documentary lacuna,
and propose the compilation oT a thematic atlas on seismic collapses in archaeology: a new disciplinary tool.
which may also prove useful for those concerned with the protection and conservation of archaeological
areas
