This paper proposes transculturality as a frame of reference while investigating the archaeological record from the Early Iron Age necropolis of Sala Consilina. An overwhelming number of archaeological artefacts from all over the Italian peninsula during the Mediterranean Bronze Age and Early Iron Age appear as the result of transculturality, in the sense that they are the outcome of communication and exchange through permeable and creative cultural environments. We therefore ought to infer the existence and spread of communication channels along with the possibility of crossing physical and cultural borders for both people and material culture. The analysis of significant pottery classes from Sala Consilina shows the transcultural character of its material culture and the capacity of its community to participate within networking systems reaching as far as the Villanovan area in Central/Northern Italy and the southern part of the Peninsula. It eventually connects with those systems in continental Europe as well as the Mediterranean world. Partly due to these connections, Sala Consilina’s development throughout the Italian Early Iron Age is also an interesting example of the link between wide historical changes and local transformations.
