Part of the Springer Water book series (SPWA)


Floods and water-level changes of water bodies in medieval Hungary and the Carpathian Basin are the subject of the present book. Applying the results of sedimentary and archaeological investigations as well as contemporary documentary evidence, when applicable, the study period covers the entire Middle Ages, from around 500 to 1500. Beyond the systematic overview and synthesis of sedimentary and a large number of archaeological investigations, the present book hosts the first concise overview and analysis of flood-related documentary evidence from the medieval period. The present chapter provides a short overview of the major areas addressed in the present volume, with highlighting some of the main results of the book, synthetising the results of interdisciplinary investigations.
