CASTELLINA IN CHIANTI
   A strategic Orientalizing and Archaic settlement (Poggio di Castellina Vecchia) between Arezzo, Volterra, and Fiesole with access to good communication routes, including the Greve and Pesa rivers. The site is associated with the monumental Orientalizing and Archaic tomb of Montecalvario, an Archaic Fiesole-type cippus, and a further small cemetery (Casalvento). The Montecalvario grave goods were not as well preserved as some other north Etruscan examples, but the fragmentary remains included bronze, iron, ivory, glass, and local coarse pottery.
