The Etruscan culture flourished for nearly a thousand years, playing an important part in the history of the Mediterranean, alongside the Greeks, Phoenicians and Romans. Eventually they were subsumed by the Roman Empire but left a substantial legacy to western civilization. While Etruscan literature has not survived, their mythology and beliefs are vividly illustrated in their art, which includes interpretations of scenes from Greek mythology. This book serves as an excellent introduction to the world of the Etruscans and their mythology, and is plentifully illustrated with images from the vast collection of the British Museum and other international museums.
