In cities worldwide, urban expansion and renewal are increasingly accompanied by archaeological research. The massive presence of archaeological layers in many historical city centres, previously rather considered as an obstacle to urban growth, is now commonly perceived as an added value and a potential asset for development. This workshop, organized by CLUE+ and the Naples University “Federico II” (Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici) in cooperation with Herity International, analyses the pitfalls and opportunities of this phenomenon, as well as the methods and procedures employed in the various steps involved, from data acquisition, documentation and storage to the integration of these data in heritage policies, urban planning and design. The two days-conference is divided into three sessions, each focusing on a specific theme. More information on the workshop, including the programme, can be found here.
