  Archaic Italy : The Picenes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
Found in Picene cemeteries are Villanovan bronzes, trapezoidal plates with duck heads in the upper corners that are a Halstatt motif from across the Alps, and bronze fibulae of a type from the Balkans, yet found nowhere else in Italy.
The fibulae found in Picene gravesites are a mixture of a violin-bow type from the Bronze Age, and a boat-shaped type from a later period, however, without the arc fibulae found elsewhere that denotes the interphase between the final Bronze Age and early Iron Age.
Several Picene sites show that they lived in communities with mixed cultures, yet their distinguishing feature was that they were very conservative, retaining Bronze Age forms and motifs in both their pottery and fibulae.

Most famously, perhaps, were the Etruscans a people who developed the largest and most powerful pre-Empire civilization and who spoke a non-Indo-European language that is today only partially understood.
To the mountainous North were encroaching Celtic tribes and to the South, coastal enclaves of Greek colonists.
Latin began as a minor Indo-European language and was restricted to only a small area of coastal Central Italy under the control of the Etruscans but it soon broke free to become the language of the Roman Empire and later provide much of the vocabulary of Western Europe's languages.
