This paper briefly reviews how to deal with a reinterpretation of historical landscapes starting from multidisciplinary approaches by combining written sources, historical cartography, and spatial analysis through GIS algorithms for a middle ages’ framework. The attention focuses on an internal area of the Monti della Tolfa (province of Rome, Italy) to which some network analysis strategies have been applied. An attempt was made to outline preliminary hypotheses for the mobility network through the reconstruction of traces from geo-referenced historical maps, archaeological evidence, toponymy and network analysis. Another attempt was made to evaluate the possible resilience over time of some roads, comparing the data of potential mobility with the first geodetic maps for greater reliability of the result. What does not appear from cartography can be integrated by the GIS data for the hypothetical reconstruction of roads layouts to define in detail new transition areas towards which concentrate archaeological surveys.

Abstract

This paper briefly reviews how to deal with a reinterpretation of historical landscapes starting from multidisciplinary approaches by combining written sources, historical cartography, and spatial analysis through GIS algorithms for a middle ages’ framework. The attention focuses on an internal area of the Monti della Tolfa (province of Rome, Italy) to which some network analysis strategies have been applied. An attempt was made to outline preliminary hypotheses for the mobility network through the reconstruction of traces from geo-referenced historical maps, archaeological evidence, toponymy and network analysis. Another attempt was made to evaluate the possible resilience over time of some roads, comparing the data of potential mobility with the first geodetic maps for greater reliability of the result. What does not appear from cartography can be integrated by the GIS data for the hypothetical reconstruction of roads layouts to define in detail new transition areas towards which concentrate archaeological surveys.
