The Orientalizing Bucchero from the Lower Building at Poggio Civitate (Murlo) (Hardback)

Usually despatched in 14+ days.


Excavations at the Etruscan site of Poggio Civitate (Murlo) have produced some of the most spectacular and provocative material recovered from Etruria. This volume presents the reconstruction and study of a large assemblage of bucchero pottery recovered from the "Lower Building" at Poggio Civitate in deposits dating from the late Orientalizing period. Bucchero is a characteristic Etruscan ceramic type that is commonly found at Orientalizing and Archaic period Etruscan sites. This study represents the first major publication on bucchero from Poggio Civitate and also is one of the few studies of a large assemblage of bucchero recovered from a nonfunerary context. The author examines the chronology, style, and function of the bucchero and also considers the question of its place of production. The analysis of the bucchero from the Lower Building has important implications not only for the dating of the rest of the Orientalizing period ceramic assemblage at Poggio Civitate, but also for the dating and study of bucchero in Etruria as a whole.
