This book is a major review of the history, society and art of the Etruscans. It describes a vast array of archaeological finds, old and new and even some unpublished, discussing and interpreting them in the light both of the ancient written sources and of modern scholarship. Using a fresh approach based on the evidence of the Etruscans' dwellings, tombs and personal belongings as represented in tomb groups, it presents the most up-to-date research and current academic debate in a clear and accessible way. It also gives a certain emphasis to evidence regarding women and their position in Etruscan society, compared with ancient Greece and Rome. This book should become a standard work on the subject for at least a generation, and will be useful reading for students of archaeology, classics, ancient history, fine art and gender studies.
