This chapter examines the process of urbanization in Etruria. There is general agreement that, in Etruria, urbanization was well under way by the end of the seventh century BC. During this period Tarquinia already showed two of the defining criteria of urban settlement: centralized authority; and state, or public cult. The chapter describes the population figures in Etruria given that urbanization depends on population densities.

Keywords:   urbanization, Etruria, Tarquinia, urban settlement, centralized authority, public cult, population densities
