Michelle Hobart (ed) Medieval Landscapes of Southern Etruria. The Excavations at Capalbiaccio Tricosto (1976-2010) Brepols, 2023.. Paperback, 366 pages, Size:216 x 280 mm, Illustrations:83 b/w, 92 col., 23 tables b/w., 61 maps b/w, 8 maps color, Language(s):English. Summary The fortified hilltop town of Capalbiaccio is a lost Etruscan settlement, a site that developed out of prehistory to become an important colony and grain provider for the Roman Empire, before being sacrificed to medieval intrigue and conquest by the Republic of Siena. The site, together with the castle of Tricosto, was first excavated forty-five years ago, but the results were never published. Then, in recent years, archaeologist Michelle Hobart was invited to explore the area with a new team and employ the latest techniques of remote sensing to explore the landscape and fortifications. The results of both explorations are presented here for the first time in this volume, which combines the invasive and non-invasive approaches of two generations of archaeologists to reveal what attracted settlers to this site, from the inhabitants of the late Bronze Age through to the most important families of medieval Tuscany. This book employs the best of the latest geophysical techniques and time-tested approaches to ground the history of Capalbiaccio, and to narrate how the fate of this small village was inextricably linked to regional and national networks, as control of the territory and the settlement's reason for being evolved over time.
