According to the book Etruscan Bucchero in the British Museum by Phillip Perkins, Etruscan bucchero is a distinctive type of pottery that was produced in central Italy from the 7th to the 5th centuries BCE. Typically it may be recognized by its fine, smooth clay, black or dark grey color and shiny, polished surface. Most bucchero is tableware – vessels from which to drink, serve or eat, or storage vessels. It has been found in tombs and settlements in Etruria (modern Tuscany and northern Lazio) but also more widely in tombs and settlements throughout central Italy. Bucchero was also exported further afield, especially to southern France where it is found in settlements and shipwrecks, and also to Spain, North Africa, Sicily, the Aegean and Egypt.
