The study of Etruscan rural settlement remained underrepresented until relatively recently. Evidence for rural settlement has now been recovered for the territories of Caere, Nepi, Tuscania, and Veii, among other cities. The most important excavations of rural settlements include Accesa Lake (seventh to sixth century BC), Podere Tartucchio (sixth century BC), Castelnuovo di Berardenga (sixth century BC), Casale Pian Roseto (fifth century BC), San Mario (fourth century BC), Pietriccoli and Cetamura di Chianti.
