Short summary
We explored the potential of a sedimentary sequence in Valle d'Aosta (Northern Italy) as a natural archive of hazards. Our results suggest that this sequence is regionally the most sensitive to earthquake shaking with the record of 8 earthquakes over the last ~270 years and that it well represents the regional and (multi-)decennial variability of Mediterranean summer–autumn floods. Hence, this sequence offers a great potential to extend chronicles of regional floods and earthquakes back in time.
