A long tradition of scholarships has focused on imports and exotic objects in central Italy during the Orientalizing Periods.
Most of these studies focused on the significance and values of these objects as indicators of wide and far-reaching trade and connections in the Mediterranean between the Eastern and Western regions; and on their role as means and agents of social interactions and therefore catalysers of social differentiation and stratification in the Western regions.
This paper will take a long term perspective and will focus on the analysis of imports from burial contexts in Latium vetus from the end of the Final Bronze Age to the end of the Orientalizing Period and will study circulation patterns both in term of gender and age dimensions and spatial analysis in order to detect specific networks and areas of interactions between local people and external agents.
