The late sixth century was a period of considerable change in Etruria; this change is traditionally seen as the adoption of superior models from Greece. In a re-alignment of agency, this book examines a wide range of Etruscan material culture - mirrors, tombs, sanctuaries, houses and cities - in order to demonstrate the importance of local concerns in the formation of Etruscan material culture. Drawing on theoretical developments, the book emphasises the deliberate nature of the smallest of changes in material culture form, and develops the concept of surface as a unifying key to understanding the changes in the ways Etruscans represented themselves in life and death. This concept allows a uniquely holistic approach to the archaeology of Etruscan society and has the potential for other archaeological investigations. The book will interest all scholars and students of classical archaeology.

Book Description:

This text eschews the traditional view of the Etruscans as being culturally indebted to Greece and instead uses a detailed examination of hand mirrors, tombs, sanctuaries, houses and cities in order to explain changes in the Etruscan material world, on Etruscan terms, all set within a Mediterranean-wide context.

About the Author:

Vedia Izzet is Lecturer in Archaeology at the University of Southampton, having previously been a Fellow of Christ's College, Cambridge. She has directed the British team at the excavation of a sanctuary site at Cerveteri and is about to start a project at the major Etruscan port of Spina.
