About the Author

Peter Attema is professor of Classical and Mediterranean Archaeology at the University of Groningen.|Gert-Jan Burgers is assistant professor of Mediterranean Archaeology at the Free University of Amsterdam.[-]|Martijn van Leusen is assistant professor of Landscape Archaeology at the University of Groningen.


-Attema, Burgers and Van Leusen take stock of decades of Dutch archaeological research in Italy in highlighting three important regions of the peninsula. Thanks to integrated methodologies and consistent data collection, excavation and field survey results from the sample areas exhibit significant parallelisms. In this way they conjure up a thought-provoking reconstruction of settlement development across a vast geographic space. [-][-]Nicola Terrenato, professor of Classical Archaeology, department of Classical Studies, University of Michigan, USA [-][-]-Using a comparative approach, intensive field-by-field examination of past settlements, sanctuaries and burial sites have been used to paint a highly detailed picture of humanactivity from the later Bronze Age to the rise of the Roman Empire. What emerges is an unparalleled series of insights into how regional societies evolve internally and in response to external interventions such as colonialism, imperialism, and international commerce. Each region tells a different story, shedding precious light on how History is actually made on the ground. [-][-]John Bintliff, professor of Classical and Mediterranean Archaeology, Leiden University, the Netherlands [-]"Regional Pathways to Complexity still[-]counts as a success inasmuch as it proves[-]the far-reaching potential of multidisciplinary[-]comparative projects towards[-]answering 'big questions' about the ancient[-]world." European Journal of Archaeology (16,1)[-]
