Copyvio in "Abandonment"[edit]

At least some of this page appears on the [thecracosociety.org] website. (NOTE that I had to view the page's source to find the text. I don't know if or how it will appear for others. I found the page looking for a population citation.)

Specifically and at least, "The geological threat to the town was known to scientists since 1910, due to Craco's location on a hill of Pliocene sands overhanging the clays, with ravines causing progressive incisions."

I do not know which came first.

I agree. The entire section on "Abandonment" repeats part of the text at http://thecracosociety.org/history.htm. Given that The Craco Society's piece is much longer, I presume that the WP text was lifted. The WP section needs to be vastly rewritten. — Molly-in-md (talk) 18:49, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
