Mikels Skele presents evidence from the Capodifiume survey of the region which provides insights into the nature of the interactiom between indigenous and colonising populations. Rather than finding evidence of tension, hostility and military domination, Skele presents data from the location and nature of cemeteries and sanctuaries and pottery, for example, to suggest that relations were cordial and even collaborative.
