From 2012 the Queen's University of Kingston (Ontario, Canada) carries out the archeological excavation of Vigna Marini Vitalini, in a central area of the plateau of the Etruscan and Roman city of Caere, 35 km N of Rome. The stratigraphic sequence spans from the Early Iron Age to the modern occupation, but the most significant evidence dates to the period between the 3rd century B.C. - when the Etruscan city was incorporated into the Roman State - and the 1st century AD.

Abstract

From 2012 the Queen's University of Kingston (Ontario, Canada) carries out the archeological excavation of Vigna Marini Vitalini, in a central area of the plateau of the Etruscan and Roman city of Caere, 35 km N of Rome. The stratigraphic sequence spans from the Early Iron Age to the modern occupation, but the most significant evidence dates to the period between the 3rd century B.C. - when the Etruscan city was incorporated into the Roman State - and the 1st century AD. In this paper a preliminary picture of the development of the trade networks of the site between the Middle Republic and the Roman Imperial Period will be outlined based on the amphoras found at Vigna Marini Vitalini. The evidence from the site will be put in the broader contest of the coast and the hinterland of central Tyrrhenian Italy.
