Preliminary results have been produced on a multi-disciplinary analysis about the opportunity to test paleo sea level on the basis of geo-archaeological signs. The study has concerned Tuscany and northern Sardinia sea coast, for the provinces of Livorno and Olbia. In order to decrease the error bar measurements was corrected for tide and atmospheric pressure using the same method of ANTONIOLI et al. (2007). The functionality of the archaeological marker was calculated on the basis of LAMBECK et al. (2004b) and AURIEMMA et al. (2009). Then the observed and corrected has been compared with the predicted sea level curve of LAMBECK et al. (2011).
