Vejano, located in the Province of Viterbo, is located on the Mignone river approximately 60 km northwest of Rome. While the most visible monument on the site today is the fifteenth century castle known as "La Rocca", the site has a long settlement history reaching back to the Bronze Age.

Evidence for Bronze Age settlement has been excavated in and around Vejano. Some scholars suggest that its name originally derives from the Etruscan city-state of Veii. By the first century B.C. the site was a Roman settlement along the Via Clodia.
