The author bases her study of the Etruscans on their art, a rich legacy revealed through excavations of their tombs. These were a people of genius in borrowing selectively from the Greeks and transforming their borrowings into a style and purpose of their own. Extensively illustrated with photos, this detailed study of Etruscan art and architecture constitutes the real core of this book, followed by chapters on language, literature, music, dancing, and religion.
