The first full account in English of the archaeological material from early Rome and the surrounding region of Latium, from the Late Bronze Age down to the end of the sixth century BC. The book sets for the first time the region of Latium in its proper context as the hinterland of Rome, and as participating in the major developments in central Italy, including Campania and Etruria, and as a witness to the radical transformation of the Mediterranean as a whole in the Late Bronze and Early Iron Age. Dr Smith presents the most recent evidence from the whole region as well as Rome itself, and discusses the reliability and usefulness of the literary accounts of early Latium, as well as applying theoretical models of regional economy and archaeological interpretation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
this book serves the useful purpose of presenting in English a narrative that brings together important scholarship written in Italian * Gary Forsythe, American Historical Review *
This volume offers pertinent analysis of the area and era which provided the "growing-ground" for the splendours which emerged in Rome in the Classical period. * Oxbow Book News *
the first English-language account of this important period * Antiquity, Volume 70, Number 268, June 1996 *
S.'s book valuably highlights the importance of looking at early Rome from the Bronze Age onwards ... its chief usefulness lies in the amount of scattered archaeological evidence marshalled together in English, which will be of benefit to those interested in early Italy. * Fay Glinister, University College, London, Journal of Roman Studies *
For anyone who has tried to ferret out archaeological reports, let alone interpret them, Smith offers substantial help. * Religious Studies Review *
