Those Darn Etruscans!

Post by alietr » Sun May 07, 2017 7:58 pm

Knowing Jeopardy!'s fondness for the Etruscans, I thought some of you might be interested in some pictures (the first 9) I took at the Etruscan museum in Cortona last month. The next three pictures show parts of original Etruscan homes in Perugia. Finally, the last two pictures are of a restaurant in a basement in Cortona where we ate, which was originally part of an Etruscan home. All these date from approximately (c. 600-300 BCE). It was fascinating stuff.
