Iconographic and cartographic documentation as a tool for knowledge, conservation and enhancement
of the French archaeological heritage
The archaeologic heritage of the classical age has been subject to phenomena that have caused either its abandonment or the continuation of use, its transformation or the loss of its integrity. In particular, the roman monuments survivors in the regions of Gallia Narbonensis and Lugdunensis, are often now in ruins after experiencing seasons of transformation, conversion to new uses, repairing of damage, restoration: processes that have ensured the survival of these buildings through a continuous integration in urban and landscape activities. The history of these buildings is documented by a iconography that testifies the transformations they have had in the dynamics of change of cities and territories. Today, these monuments are mostly located in urban and landscape contexts, whose transformations often risk to compromise the connection between them and their surroundings. The paper presents the results of a research aimed to the preservation, and sustainable fruition of such goods.
