Iron Age communities of southern Latium, the area south of Rome in central Italy, in the early 1st millennium bc. The Latians are thought to have developed from the Pianello regional variant of the Urnfield Tradition, and certainly cremation burials in Latian contexts were widespread in the Alban Mountains and around Rome itself. The Latians were the ancestors of the Romans and were responsible for the construction of houses on the Palatine Hill during the 9th century bc.
