New Publication on Italy: Special offer for Accordia Members

Guy Bradley, Elena Isayev and Corinna Riva (eds). Ancient Italy. Regions without Boundaries
Exeter University Press. 2007

This collection of essays on the peoples and communities of ancient Italy includes contributions by many long-standing Accordia members and associates, including (in addition to the editors), Edward Bispham, Ralph Hšussler, Edward Herring, Vedia Izzet, Kathryn Lomas, Christopher Smith and Simon Stoddart. The book covers the Ligurians and Celts in north-west Italy, the Veneti, Picenes, the Etruscans, the Faliscans, the Latins, the Samnites, the peoples of Campania and the peoples of south-east Italy. Each essay provides a brief introduction to the region and its communities, a summary of recent scholarship and a map showing the location of significant sites, and then goes on to bring out the key issues raised by the most recent research within that region. The book addresses themes in the study of the ancient world: settlement and landscape; identity; religious and funerary ritual; elite stratification and display; social and cultural interaction drawing on evidence from archaeological excavation and survey, numismatics, epigraphy and literature.
