The age-old practice of charcoal has fostered its production as fuel for several human activities for both domestic and industrial purposes. By putting ouselves in a coalman's shoes, we can not only understand the actions and difficulties of this practice, but also, as archeologists, we have the chance to look to the remains that such ancestral activity has left in our environment from a different point of view. Here you can find some images depicting the making of an experimental charcoal kiln on the Euganean Hills (Padua, Italy) from 25th to 29th October 2017.

In collaboration with the MEMOLA project, Dr Sandrine Paradise-Grenouillet, postdoctoral fellow of the Marie Curie European program, carried out the first research on the historical evolution of forests in the Euganean Hills. We leave some images about these investigations.


On Tuesday 13th of June took place in the University of Córdoba the workshop "The sustainability of agricultural systems and cultural landscapes", with the participation of researchers from the Universities of Padova, Granada, Córdoba and Palermo, the Autonomous University of Madrid and the CSIC. 

With a few simple gestures you can walk in the Euganean Hills discovering the most significant and evocative views of this territory and the populations who lived and transformed it over time.
