There were a number of replies to this since you posted. Here is the thread
If the volume of deletion is great then for sure the simplest way to recover
is going to be to delete the remaining data for the relevant bbox and reload
it all from last week's planet or your own OSM file. Bear in mind though
that doing that will remove a) all the history data for objects and b) (if
you use planet) the details of the original contributors.
There is currently no way to revert a specific area for a given time span at
the server end. Would need new tools developing to do that.
