[EN] The paper sets in prominence the newfound cooperation between engineering and archaeology. This integration of knowledge is particularly useful in the development of preventive archaeology that allows targeted excavations with a considerable saving of resources and a widening of the possibilities for the protection of the cultural heritage. In many cases, the engineering reading of the ancient buildings reveals surprisingly good construction practices in seismic areas. Particularly, the architectures of archaeological sites shows a series of cases that meet the criteria of seismic assessment by combining the formal and functional aspects of space destructio...
