P. A. J. Attema, Rijksuniversiteit te Groningen
Archaeopress, 2002 - Social Science - 265 pages
The project Regional Pathways to Complexity, Landscape and Settlement Dynamics in Early Italy was set up to study the processes of centralisation, early urbanism and colonisation in three main regions of Italy in the first millennium BC. This volume forms the proceedings of an international conference held at the University of Groningen, Netherlands, in 2000, that looked at developments in landscape archaeology within the remit of this project. With GIS methods and applications at the heart of the project, the contributors discuss and interpret regional settlement data, site histories, pottery technology and production, land-use models and landscape perceptions from both urban and rural perspectives.
