Abstract

This study focuses primarily on providing a report of the data gathered through the San Giuliano Archaeological Research Project in regard to the survey of the Etruscan cemetery encompassing the perimeter of the site. I outline major themes of Etruscan burial practices and the uses of ceramics to provide chronologies for tomb burials. These specific factors function as a way to understand the changing social structures of the Etruscan society in regard to funerary ritual. Data collected from the last two field seasons will be analyzed for typologies and patterns in tomb layout. Implications of these finds will be discussed in regard to the future goals of the project for bettering our interpretation of the site of San Giuliano and the Etruscan approach to the dead.
