This chapter explores how historical evidences can be used to address some fundamental questions about earthquakes and understanding of their activity. It mainly considers studies of the seismicity and tectonics of the Eastern Mediterranean region and the Middle East. Identifying the time intervals between destructive earthquakes in a certain place can help us to establish a pattern for their occurrence and the long-term seismicity in that area. The use of long-term information can be best… Expand
