Article
At the beginning of the twentieth century, artificial stones became commonly used as structural building materials, masonry materials, and architectural decorative elements. The main purpose of this work was to characterize the building materials used in a historical building in Codigoro, a small town near Ferrara, northeastern Italy. This building...

Microscopic observation correlated with chemical–mineralogical characterization was performed on pigment samples from “Abrigo del Lince” rock art site (V-IV millennium BC), in order to provide contributions to the study of prehistoric schematic art on granite in the province of Badajoz (Spain). The research objectives include the understanding of t...
Article
Maltravieso cave (Estremadura, Spain) was recently the subject of ATR-FTIR spectroscopy of 8 figures (four hand stencils, a red horse figure, a black bull figure, a pair of black lines, and a pair of brown lines). These artistic representations are composed of different colors including red, brown, and black figures. The analyses showed that differ...

Abstract- Geometries on a carinated bowl: a dynamic reconstruction of the decorative process A carinated bowl in fine greyish ware found at Pilastri in a disturbed context bears an intricated design, rapidly incised with a fine point before firing (in leather-like state of hardness). The pattern is a curious blend of geometric cognition and careles...

Abstract – Faunal remains: zooarchaeological and taphonomic studies of the finds from the 2016-2018 field seasons During the digs, soil samples taken from well-defined stratigraphic units (US), were sieved in dry conditions or in water. Together with the normal collection on the trenches, this allowed an abundant collection of animal bones belongi...

Abstract: Buildings are the physical expression of a country’s, history, culture, technological level and lifestyle of it. In the last 20 years there has been a strong push towards new analytical approaches in the study of masonry works of common use, based on the interpretation of their socio-cultural meaning and the presentation of new proposals...

Abstract: This study has arisen from post-seismic rehabilitation plans supported by the ER Region, together with the municipalities, on historic buildings, more or less severely affected by the earthquake of 2012. This work is a part of a wide intervention aimed to carry out the functional and architectural recovery of a former Mill through the re...

Abstract: This project will investigate human adaptation during the climate changes in the Iberian Peninsula, specifically, in context with rock art, combining figurative evidence with deposits in caves and outdoors. All of this combining different disciplines and different scientific approaches, through the use of petrographic, geochemical and iso...

Abstract: The Iberian Peninsula is full of evidences, related to the adaptation strategies of the hunter-gatherers, especially dated back to the Upper Palaeolithic. In this territory it is possible to carry out an extremely detailed systematic study on the evolution of the human-environment relationships and human adaptation to climate change. Seve...
