3D archaeological map: contribution of the reconstruction of the ancient landscape of the west-central area of Salento (Italy)


The purpose of the topographical and archaeological research project is to provide a new contribution to the systematic survey of a Salento peninsula’s sector, the territory of "Valle dell'Asso", updating the archaeological knowledge, through the sistematic survey of the territory. The area analyzed (IGM, F. 214 III NE, Neviano), has a variously undulated surface, with elevations ranging from 45m to 140m above sea level, it is characterized by Serra Sant'Eleuterio to the West and SerraMontalto to the East. Among these elevations there is a valley, long and narrow, marked by the Asso’s endorheic basin, probably formed in the Middle Pleistocene. The study of the area was integrated with the construction of a mosaic aerial photo and the construction of a Digital Terrain Model (DTM), prepared on base map in scale 1: 5.000 (Regional Technical Map).
