The paper will analyse three scales of Etruscan political dynamics with the aid of a diverse rangeof computerised techniques, homing in on the northern frontier of Perugia. The analysis will startat the macro scale, employing the XTENT technique (Redhouse and Stoddart 2011) to show the mathematicallyderived territorial boundaries of the Etruscans. The analysis will then focus on the frontier ofPerugia and her northern Umbrian neighbour Gubbio, employing viewshed analysis to provide a measureof the sensual extent of political power. Finally the GIS analysis will target one site, Coldi Marzo (Perugia), which, at a precise historical moment in the fifth century BC, was planted at thelimit of that political power - for this work, geophysical analysis will be presented, tested byexcavation.
