A lecture by Greg Warden. The Etruscans are mostly known from their tombs, but seventeen years of excavation at the site of Poggio Colla have revealed important new evidence about a settlement at the northern edge of Tuscany. This lecture will focus on the remarkable findings of the past few years, where recent excavation of the acropolis sanctuary has produced new understanding of Etruscan religion and ritual.
This lecture is dedicated to the memory of former Dallas-Fort Worth AIA Society President and Poggio Colla Field School staff member Larry Lehman.
Co-sposored by the Meadows Museum at SMU.
