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
