The paper presents and discusses new and recently acquired evidence that enriches the picture of funerary practices within the Piceni culture of the northern Marche region and in particular in the valleys of the Cesano, Nevola and Misa rivers, often regarded as notoriously different from the rest of the region in the lower quantity and ‘quality’ of existing evidence regarding the pre-Roman Italic population. The analysis integrates the new information provided by remote sensing in the Cesano-Nevola-Misa area into the more general framework of the findings from north of the Esino, making it possible to recognize recurrent trends and topographical aspects within the area under study, albeit with some distinctive local variations. The discussion and integration of this new information reveals a pre-Roman landscape that is far from rarefied, the forms and settlement preferences within the area of funerary activity being closely related to the characteristics of the landscape itself and in particular to those elements which facilitate both settlement and communication.

Abstract

The paper presents and discusses new and recently acquired evidence that enriches the picture of funerary practices within the Piceni culture of the northern Marche region and in particular in the valleys of the Cesano, Nevola and Misa rivers, often regarded as notoriously different from the rest of the region in the lower quantity and ‘quality’ of existing evidence regarding the pre-Roman Italic population. The analysis integrates the new information provided by remote sensing in the Cesano-Nevola-Misa area into the more general framework of the findings from north of the Esino, making it possible to recognize recurrent trends and topographical aspects within the area under study, albeit with some distinctive local variations. The discussion and integration of this new information reveals a pre-Roman landscape that is far from rarefied, the forms and settlement preferences within the area of funerary activity being closely related to the characteristics of the landscape itself and in particular to those elements which facilitate both settlement and communication.
