Abstract

The Kasbahs of Chellah and Oudayas are the most important archaeological Roman and Islamic sites of the imperial city Rabat. An interdisciplinary analysis involving different geological disciplines and environmental factors was performed to introduce an innovative restoration method intended to reduce their progressive degradation. Gravitational instability (e.g. Oudayas) and erosion (e.g. Chellah) from fluvial-littoral geomorphological processes, regional seismicity, and certain anthropic activities are the main degradation processes to be reduced by following the proposed recommendations. The urban water quality to be used for restoration may require the application of special cements and mortars for restoration. - (NF)
