About the funerary landscapes of Magna Graecia. An archaeological approach

Abstract : When they left their city and crossed the necropolises, what landscape did the inhabitants of Magna Graecia see? This article presents a methodology for analyzing the funerary spaces in their entirety and thus addressing individual graves in their context, through different approaches: study of ancient sources, plans and topography, focus on surface material and structures not strictly funerary, inventory of the relevant material... Combined with a study of tomb markers and of the objectives of those who install them, this systematic approach of the documentation suggests in fine an evocative reconstruction of the Italian funerary landscapes of the 5th-3rd centuries BC.
