Question and answer
Why are the Etruscans considered mysterious?
The Etruscans are considered 'mysterious' and enigmatic in popular literature, chiefly because of the (non-Indo-European) language they spoke. Yet in fact Etruscan society is in some ways one of the most studied and best known in antiquity. [ Their great cities occupied the area of modern Tuscany and northern Lazio in Italy, where vast cemeteries are still visible. Etruscan society was highly literate in ancient terms, but no Etruscan literature survives. The views of Greek and Roman authors about the Etruscans were clearly influenced by their fascination for this 'lost' civilisation, and
this literary evidence has to be carefully compared with the rich archaeological record. At their peak, the Etruscans were thought to have controlled much of Italy and the western Mediterranean and to have been a formative influence on Rome. This course will examine the truth behind this image, and the gradual process by which these cities were conquered and brought under Roman domination. ]
