The Mysterious Etruscans
Osher (50+). A study of the Etruscan civilization which flourished in central Italy between the 8th and 3rd century BCE.
About this course:
The Etruscan civilization flourished in central Italy between the 8th and 3rd century BCE. Much of its culture and even history was either obliterated or assimilated into that of its conqueror, Rome. Their origin is unknown and their language is not related to any other language. They left magnificent tombs and had a very distinctive religion. This course examines the Etruscans, their influence on Rome, and Manga Graecia’s influence on them. A study of their culture is one that we shall see affected our own.
