This project will involve a comparative analysis of Etruria and indigenous Iberia; the ultimate aim is to evaluate whether and the extent to which parallel trajectories occurred in those non-Greco-Roman Mediterranean regions, and hence uncover the diversity of solutions to socio-political cohesion in urbanism across the 1st-millennium-BC Mediterranean in order to contribute to debates to global studies on urbanism and citizenship.
