added by archaeologs A settlement site on the Treia gorge near Calcata in Lazio, Italy, surrounded by an extensive necropolis, and probably inhabited from the 12th century BC. Occupation was mainly by Faliscans, an Indo-European Italic group, and it is therefore associated with their centers at Falerii and Capena. The town prospered under Etruscan domination in the 7th and 6th centuries BC. Material evidence seems in general to follow a local (Faliscan) cultural sequence. Evidence survives for fortification walls, pit and trench burials, and chamber tombs with monumental doorways. Occupation continued to the 4th-3rd centuries BC.
