The Etruscans were an ancient people whose civilization flourished on the western coast of Italy from approximately 700 – 300 BC. Wealthy Etruscans were buried in massive tombs, along with their jewelry and other earthly possessions. Just like ancient Egypt, but with less mummies. In the nineteenth century, a series of Etruscan tombs were opened, and the beautiful gold-work found within captured the imagination of the Victorian public.
