Abstract:

"This comprehensive and fully up-to-date survey of Etruscan civilization traces its development from origins in the Villanovan Iron Age in the ninth century B.C. to its absorption by Rome in the first century B.C. Combining well-known aspects of Etruscan civilization with new discoveries and fresh insights, in particular into the role of women in Etruscan society, Sybille Haynes draws a complete and vivid picture of a people and a culture." "The text is organized both chronologically and thematically, interweaving archaeological evidence, analysis of social structure and trade, and description of pottery, architecture, tomb forms, burial customs and works of art with available historical sources. The author shows how geographical and geological differences within Central Italy determined access to mineral wealth, agricultural land and trade routes, and led to notable regional variations within Etruria. She also contrasts the Etruscans both with the Greeks, whose art stimulated their own, and with the Romans, who took over many elements of Etruscan culture and yet extinguished the Etruscans as a nation."--BOOK JACKET.
