This multidisciplinary research studies the palaeohydrography of the distal part of the Adige and Po alluvial plain (north-eastern Italy) for understanding man-environment relations during the Late Holocene. The southern Venetian plain corresponds to the distal tracts of the Adige and Po alluvial systems. Archaeological investigations in this area, indicate the existence of a complex settlement network, starting in the Bronze Age (2200-1000 B.C.) and continuing in the Iron Age (1000-200 B.C.) and Roman times (200 B.C.-476 A.D.) with a well-preserved Roman centuria. The reconstruction of the palaeoenvironmental conditions during the Late Holocene has been mainly based on remote sensing interpretation and archaeological data. In this reseach, new geomorphological, chronostratigraphical and petrographical data are presented, in order to provide better insights on the man-environment relationships in the study area.

Abstract

This multidisciplinary research studies the palaeohydrography of the distal part of the Adige and Po alluvial plain (north-eastern Italy) for understanding man-environment relations during the Late Holocene. The southern Venetian plain corresponds to the distal tracts of the Adige and Po alluvial systems. Archaeological investigations in this area, indicate the existence of a complex settlement network, starting in the Bronze Age (2200-1000 B.C.) and continuing in the Iron Age (1000-200 B.C.) and Roman times (200 B.C.-476 A.D.) with a well-preserved Roman centuria. The reconstruction of the palaeoenvironmental conditions during the Late Holocene has been mainly based on remote sensing interpretation and archaeological data. In this reseach, new geomorphological, chronostratigraphical and petrographical data are presented, in order to provide better insights on the man-environment relationships in the study area.
