Abstract

The “Harvesting Memories” project focuses on the study of long-term landscape transformations as a diachronic result of the interaction between human socio-economic patterns and environmental and ecological trends in a rural area in central-western Sicily. It uses an interdisciplinary approach, integrating different sources to reconstruct ecological, settlement and land use history of a specific rural geographic area. The aim of this paper is to present the results of the archaeological survey carried out in the Castro/Giardinello Valley and the Mt. Barraù area (Corleone, Palermo). The fieldwork confirmed the long occupation of this area, characterized by archaeological evidence dating to the Middle Copper Age/Aeneolithic, Bronze Age, Classical period, the Middle Ages and the Late Modern age. The detection of high intensity human presence in this area over time is a fruitful starting point for future investigations aimed at correlating historical land use, ecological factors and settlement patterns.
