In popular imagination the Etruscans are the very stuff of fantasy, myth and legend. Who are they, where did they come from, and what does their language mean? In reality, although wiped out or assimilated by Rome, they have left us an extraordinarily rich heritage of art, jewellery, metal working, terracotta sculpture, urban planning, walls, and roads. Indeed, in the 6th century BC, the Etruscans were the most powerful people in the Mediterranean.
