Spotlight Lecture

The Demise of the Etruscans – Saturday 15 January

With Dr. Eireann Marshall

In our final lecture, we examine the demise of the Etruscans and their continued influence on succeeding generations. By the first century, Etruscan was no longer spoken and much of the culture which made them unique had disappeared. The demise of the Etruscans is, however, matched with the influence they had on Rome. We will see how Etruscan culture was at the core of much of what Romans  considered most important about themselves, from its religion and clothing, to its entertainments and notions of personhood. With so much of Etruscan surviving through Rome, they remain an integral, if un recognised part of European culture.
