Other information

This is a series of twenty-four 35-minute video lectures on one of the least known cultures located in a well-known tourist destination, Tuscany, Italy. The Etruscans co-existed with early Greeks, Romans and Carthaginians and contributed considerably to Roman culture, including the toga, temples, major elements of art, writing, religion, sculptures and much more. Etruscan written documents are yet to be translated.
NOTE: Two videos will be presented in each session, with a short break between them.
