etruria for sure-ia

my favorite quote from june 22, 2004: 'One of my peculiar areas of expertise is what happened to the Etruscans in the Renaissance' (from a lecture by Dr. Ingrid D. Rowland).

also, on june 22 i learned to read etruscan. ok, so i learned what sounds all the letters make and 4 or 5 words. but that's like 1% of all known etruscan vocabulary, so i figure that's not too bad.

If you're still interested when you get back, I can give you a few chapters from an unpublished textbook on Etruscan by one of the world's foremost authorities.
