Fun Fact Friday: The Etruscans Pt3

Do you know about the Etruscans? They’re one of my favorite ancient civilizations and existed between the Greek and Roman periods. I watched a fascinating documentary series on Great Courses called the Mysterious Etruscans about them recently.  Many people don’t know about this ancient civilization and their impact on history, so I thought I’d share some things about them these next couple of weeks!

Etruscan art was greatly influenced by Greek culture.  This influence can be seen in their connection to current subjects, materials, and style trends from Greece.

In my researching I found this wonderful article written by a history writer based in Italy that talks more about the influences of Etruscan Art and the transition of culture between the ancient civilizations.  Check it out and let me know what you think!
