NARCE
   An important Faliscan settlement placed on three main distinct outcrops of Narce (204 meters above sea level and 14 hectares), Monte li Santi (224 meters above sea level and 14 hectares) and Pizzo Piede (210 meters above sea level and 19 hectares). There has been a long history of research at Narce, dating back to the nineteenth century, and a corresponding dispersal of material in the major museums of Italy, Europe, and the United States. The earliest occupation started in the Middle Bronze Age (on a much smaller area of perhaps five hectares) and continued into the full Archaic and later periods, although there is much discussion about its continuity. One feature of the site is the prominence of Etruscan inscriptions from the seventh to the end of the third century BC. Another is the presence of two fifth-century BC sanctuaries.
