Documenti inediti nell'Archivio storico del Museo di Villa Giulia. Contributi all'archeologia di Narce
In: Archeologia Classica: 50, 1999
Only a very small part of the excavated material was acquired for the Villa Giulia Museum; the remainder, known only from the 1894 monograph on the necropoleis of Narce, was dispersed on the antiquarian market. Thanks to these nex documents, it has been possible to identify the contents of a limited number of tombs as having found their way to the Archaeological Museum of Florence; the finds from one tomb have been traced to the Danish National Museum, in Copenhagen.
The photographs have also made possible the reconstruction a more complete picture of some vast necropoleis (Pizzo Piede, Monte Cerreto) and to identify material taken out of context and scattered among different museums (Villa Giulia, Florence, Viterbo). The photographs of lost grave goods have provided details that shed light on the culture of Narce between the first half of the 7th and the 4th century B.C.
