9780814318133: Etruscan Life and Afterlife: A Handbook of Etruscan Studies

The lively ferment in Etruscan studies, generated in part by recent archaeological discoveries and fostered by new trends in interpretation, has produced a wealth of information about the people historians traditionally considered as inaccessible. Now, scholars are reconstructing a portrait of the wealthy, sophisticated Etruscans whose territory once extended from the Po River to the Bay of Naples.

Unfortunately, the wider English-speaking public has had no single resource which synthesizes these new findings and interpretations about the Etruscans. In fact, some sources continue to propagate the traditional myth of the "enigmatic and isolated Etruscans." In response, the eminent Etruscan scholar Larissa Bonfante asked seven other internationally known classicists to join her in providing this "handbook" for the
non-specialist as an authoritative and readable guide to the burgeoning Etruscan scholarship.

As Bonfante explains in the introductory chapter, "The Etruscans provide an excellent opportunity of turning archaeology into history: this we tried to do, in our chapters, according to our individual directions. Nancy Thomson de Grummond traces the interest in and knowledge of the Etruscans from the earliest days. Mario Torelli provides an independent account of Etruscan history, based on monuments and sources. Jean MacIntosh Turfa belies the cliche of the Etruscans' traditional 'isolation' by surveying the material evidence for their trade with the
Phoenicians, Greeks, and other neighbors in the Mediterranean. Marie-Françoise Briguet, Friedhelm Prayon, David Tripp, and I survey Etruscan art, architecture, coinage, and daily lives, respectively, Emeline Richardson contributes what she calls a 'primer' in the Etruscan language, a basic archaeological introduction to the Etruscan language, meant to help newcomers read the inscriptions on many of the monuments illustrated and to see these with the interdisciplinary approach so characteristic of, and necessary in, Etruscan studies."

The book is profusely illustrated with over 300 photos and maps. Notes and bibliographic references lead to standard texts on the Etruscans and to the more specialized literature in the field. The result is a reliable and lively volume which brings readers into the mainstream of the latest Etruscan scholarship.

Book Description:

A reliable and lively volume which brings readers into the mainstream of the latest Etruscan scholarship.

From the Publisher:

In a series of lively and authoritative essays, eight internationally known scholars present a portrait of the wealthy, sophisticated Etruscans, whose territory once extended from the Po River to the Bay of Naples. Once considered to be lost to history, the Etruscan civilization is reemerging into focus because of recent archaeological discoveries and new trends in interpretation.

The eminent Etruscan scholar Larissa Bonfante and her seven colleagues synthesize these new findings and theories each according to his or her discipline. A primer on Etruscan language is included to help newcomers decipher the inscriptions on many of the monuments illustrated in the book.
