The Life and Death of an Etruscan Sanctuary: New Discoveries at Poggio Colla
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 sanctuary has produced new understanding of acropolis Etruscan religion and ritual. Sponsored by the Dallas- Fort Worth Society of the Archaeological Institute of America and the Meadows Museum at SMU.
Free and open to the public, no reservations required. Priority seating for Museum members until 5:40 p.m. For more information, contact Carmen
