Cities and Communities of the Etruscans

Nancy Thomson de Grummond and Lisa C. Pieraccini, series editors

What defines an Etruscan city or community? How did they arise and how did they create their own identities? To understand the major Etruscan cities better, we must also examine the smaller settlements. How can we trace how communities developed differently from cities? Did these places play a distinctive role in comparison to the cities? Addressing these queries using a broader archaeological gaze allows for a deeper understanding of Etruscan customs, art, and culture. With this series, we hope to shed light on the social, religious, economic, architectural, artistic, and civic fabric of Etruscan cities and communities.
