Summary

On the right side of the Lower Tiber Valley, the transition between the Final Bronze Age and the Early Iron Age was characterised by two dramatic contemporaneous events: the rapid abandonment of the Final Bronze Age fortified villages and the rise of a large unitary centre on the site of Veii. This pattern of settlements was found throughout the whole of coastal southern Etruria, where by the end of the tenth and the beginning of the ninth century BC the Final Bronze Age landscape composed of clusters of small fortified villages was transformed into one of large centralised fortified settlements such as Veii, Caere, Tarquinii and Vulci (Figure 8).
