[SIZE=+1]From the Bryn Mawr Classic Review:[/SIZE]
This volume bears the fruits of a fully packed conference session on the subject during the APA/AIA Annual Meeting in 2008 in Chicago. The enthusiasm and excitement felt during that session can now be shared by a broader audience in the form of this very welcome volume, which not only discloses much new and important archaeological evidence, but also offers sophisticated methodological reflections on it. The time period covered ranges from the 6th to 1st centuries BC. The first four chapters each discuss a major site under recent excavation, and are followed by three more synthetic discussions on religious ritual, a conclusion and a topographic bibliography.

All papers share a constructive focus on the material evidence and what we can do with it rather than on the unavoidable limitations of our data. This laudable approach props the Introduction by Ingrid Edlund-Berry, which emphasizes the significance of the spatial context in the recognition and definition of Etruscan sacred places and religious ritual.
