The brief title doesn't really reflect the wealth of information in the three reports in this book. Arising from the British School at Rome's archaeological survey in southern Etruria between 1950 and 1975, they provide important evidence for the transition years between Roman and Medieval. Santa Cornelia, the abandoned site of a medieval monastic seat built from and among the remains of Roman buildings, yielded detailed information about the background, origins and development of the monastery; at Santa Rufina, the traditional site of the burial and centre of the cult of the third century martyr Rufina, excavations revealed a chapel, defensive walls, piazza and timber huts, part of a medieval settlement, overlying a late Roman mausoleum and catacombs, and earlier buildings; at San Liberato the fabric of the surviving church is recorded and analysed to determine its history and development from the early Middle Ages. All reports carry full accounts of the finds, sculptures and inscriptions.
