The re-evaluation of the South Etruria Survey : the first results from Veii.

Patterson, H. and di Gennaro, F. and Di Giuseppe, H. and Fontana, S. and Rendeli, M. and Sansoni, M. and Schiapelli, A. and Witcher, R. E. (2004) 'The re-evaluation of the South Etruria Survey : the first results from Veii.', in Bridging the Tiber : approaches to regional archaeology in the Middle Tiber Valley. London: British School at Rome, pp. 11-28.


The re-evaluation of the South Etruria survey carried out during the 1950s to ?70s is at the core of the British School at Rome?s Tiber Valley project. Since 1997, a team of fifteen ceramic specialists has been restudying the material collected by John Ward-Perkins and his team, and the information has been entered into the Tiber Valley project GIS and database. This paper presents the first results of this restudy, focusing on the material from the important Etruscan and Roman centre of Veii. The survey finds from this site have never been fully studied or published. Their restudy in the light of recent developments in ceramic studies provides an important contribution to our understanding of the history and development of this major Etruscan city and rival to Rome, from its origins in the protohistoric period, through its conquest in the early fourth century BC to its final decline during the late Imperial period.
