Overview

Despite a number of general introductions to the Etruscans being published recently, this ancient civilisation which was brought to an end by the Romans in the 4th and 3rd centuries BC, remains somewhat of an enigma. This collection of thirty-seven essays, along with photographs and a catalogue of objects taken from an exhibition held at the Palazzo Grassi in Venice, address many of the stereotypes that still abound. This large book includes studies on the origins of the Etruscans, economic and political structures, territorial expansion, sculpture, religion, writing and language, pottery, antiquarianism and the rediscovery of the Etruscans. Includes a large catalogue of objects.
