|Abstract: ||During the 4th century AD southern Calabria and eastern Sicily were hit by an earthquake documented
by archaeoseismic analyses, which was interpreted by Guidoboni et al. (2000) as the predecessor of
the well-know 1908 earthquake, located in Messina Strait, whereas Galli and Bosi (2002) interpreted
this event as the precedessor of the 1783 earthquake.
The purpose of this paper is to find further evidence of these earthquakes in Messina area by a multidisciplinary
study aimed to recognize and date historical and paleo-earthquakes. For this goal we have
analyzed historical, archaeological and geological information of excavations performed at Capo
Peloro near the Torre del Faro village (Fig. 1) in the Torre degli Inglesi (English Tower), built on an
abandoned Roman tower.|
