Jean Turfa (Research Associate, University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology “Etruscan). “Divination: It’s Not Just Sheep Livers Anymore!”

Archaeological finds and rediscovered manuscripts have led to a new examination of haruspicy, the divination by sheep liver taught by Etruscan priests to their Roman counterparts. Etruscans also observed thunder for messages from the gods and Dr. Jean Turfa will share some new insights from the first English translation of The Etruscan Brontoscopic Calendar, a book in press for Cambridge University Press (2011).
