The history of human occupation in arid environments has always been inextricably tied to the history of water. From prehistory to now, populations have continuously occupied isolated spaces in proximity to watering holes, or refugia, later modifying their environments in the form of artificial niches, or oases. The objective of this conference is to investigate the natural formation of these spaces, followed by their construction and evolution as socio-economic, political and agricultural entities. The theme of this conference contributes directly to current debates on the preservation and integrated exploitation of this continually changing human heritage.
