Restoration and use of the early medieval fortifications in the east mediterranean countries

Restoration and use of the early medieval fortifications in the east mediterranean countries

Objective

The primary objective of this proposal is the development, establishment and dissemination of a holistic approach for the consolidation and restoration of masonry monuments of the East Mediterranean Countries and especially the Early Medieval Fortifications as they consist a common cultural feature for the region. The stability, the functional behaviour, as well as the historical and environmental background of the old fortifications, envisaged as an integrated whole, would be primarily taken into account in order to manufacture and implement new repair materials while maintaining the authenticity of them and their incorporation to modern urban centres or natural landscape. The dissemination and exchange of knowledge and experience will be steadily encouraged through a wide range of activities: Consultancy, short term trainingfacilities, workshops and regular meetings of partners.
