of the Tiber Sabines
The Archeological Museum at Magliano Sabina has come into existence recently, with the opening to the public of the first 2 floors of Palazzo Gori, with sections dedicated to the Bronze age, the early iron age, the Sabine era, and the Hellenistic period. The aim of the museum is to become an example of a living museum where ordinary members of the public can come into contact with the culture of the past and learn about the history of the surrounding area.
Archeological studies have given us an idea of how the ancient settlement at Magliano (its name is unknown) was laid out. Like other settlements of this period (7th century BC) in Etruria and Lazio, spreading over an easily defensible hillside, and separated by a valley from the eastern hills, used as a necropolis.The success of this settlement was mainly due to its position overlooking the River Tiber, of fundamental importance in ancient times for both cultural and commercial exchanges. The settlement also controlled the routes used for the seasonal movements of flocks.
The picture which emerges of the Tiber Sabines is one of of a people participating in the processes of cultural and economic change going on in the Tiber basin during the 7th and 8th century BC. Incorporating influences from the Etruscans, the Sabines developed their own culture which spread over the Adriatic side of the peninsula.
