Disaster Archaeology, an upcoming interdisciplinary science, emerges and establishes itself as a uniquely significant part of the fields that deal with environmental studies, hazards, risk management, prevention policies and mitigation plans all over the world. Considering that the functions and the results of disasters, the human response to hazards and the carrying capacity of natural and human ecosystems do vary considerably in space and time, modern scientists can detect the spatial and temporal distribution of hazards.
This discipline can provide researchers with a huge spectrum of information concerning archaeodisasters. Generally speaking, D.A.: a) defines the identity, the impact and the dynamics of hazards & disasters in relation with the human civilization (biological, ecological, environmental, economic, political, technological, geographical and cultural results), b) tries to find and analyze the kinds, frequency and magnitude of them, being hidden in the "archaeological landscapes", c) searches for the adaptation process in past human societies and the "unfamiliar landscapes" formed after disasters, by reconstructing the natural & cultural landscapes of the past that were used and modified by humans, d) deals with hazard management matters concerning the cultural heritage in modern societies.
Come with us in this exciting journey that covers both the despair, the irrevocable change and the loss, along with the hope, the renaissance, the creativeness and the victorious adaptation of humans to this beautiful, challenging planet!
