9780521355681: Territory, Time and State: The Archaeological Development of the Gubbio Basin

Territory, Time and State explores the relationship between the physical and man-made environments of the Gubbio basin, taking issues related to Early Man, prehistoric settlement, the emergence of the city-state and its almost simultaneous domination by Rome. A rare integration is achieved between traditional archaeological objectives (epigraphy, chronology and excavation) and more recent advances (field survey, environmental reconstruction and contextual evaluation).

Book Description Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 1994. Hard Cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. Territory, Time and State is a study of long term archaeological history in the remote and beautiful upland valley of Gubbio within the Umbrian Apennines of Italy. The aim of the work is well defined by the natural constraints of this mountainous region. The authors have developed a multi-disciplinary approach to study the human and physical characteristics of the valley from the paleolithic to the medieval period. They integrate the analysis of a unique text (the Iguvine Tables) with excavation, field survey and environmental reconstruction to provide a synthesis of current knowledge. They break boundaries of time and tradition which are normally compartmentalised between different scholars. Although the linkage is sometimes controversial, it is always stimulating. The book has two major focuses: the first is on the Bronze Age landscape where spectacular sites and finds have contributed very significantly to our knowledge of pre-state Italy; and the second is on the identity and character of the early city state of Gubbio and its incorporation into the Roman world.
