Abstract: Preserving the cultural heritage of antiquity is one of the most important tasks of the mankind. On this basis, the European Parliament, via the Policy Department Structural and Cohesion Policies, published the study entitled: “Protecting The Cultural Heritage From Natural Disasters”. This study analyses the actions that are being carried out to protect the cultural heritage from floods, earthquakes and other natural phenomena in Europe. In this work the numerical code Iber has been used to design the protection barriers from floods of the Roman Military Camp of “Aquis Querquennis” (69-79 A.C.). This roman camp, inside the Roman Itinerary “Via Nova”, is located in the shore of the “Las Conchas” impoundment in the Northwest of Spain. This camp is subjected to the floods associated to this impoundment of “Las Conchas”. Therefore, and according to the directives of the European Parliament, a series of protecting measures have been analysed using Iber, which is a 2-D numerical code developed by GEAMA (Universidade da Coruña) and Flumen (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya) that uses the finite volume technique to solve the 2-D Shallow Water Equations.
