GUBBIO
   A pre-Roman settlement in northeastern Umbria best known for the seven Iguvine tables or bronze tablets that record the ritual structure of the city. The hills behind the town have a concentration of bronze settlements starting in the Middle Bronze Age and expanding in the Final Bronze Age. From the sixth century BC, there is evidence of contact with the Etruscan world in the form of banquet and feasting equipment (an Etrusco-Corinthian plate, a Schnabelkanne, and a cauldron). One Archaic figurine of a kouros shows contacts with the Etruscan world, but many of the schematic figurines (especially from Monte Ansciano above the city) are more typical of the Umbrian region. There is further evidence of Etruscan contact in the fourth and third centuries BC, including a bronze situla, a trilobed, spouted bronze jug, and pottery.
