We tend to believe that the classical Greek and Roman cultures are the models on which the best in Western Civilization is based. But no! We have overlooked a wellspring of classical inspiration: the mysterious Etruscans who thrived in the region of modern Tuscany. For this Great Courses lecture series we turn again to classics professor Steven Tuck of Miami University. As an archeologist himself, Tuck has direct knowledge of his subject and has received numerous teaching awards based on both content and style. The video lectures will explore Etruscan tombs and temples, luxurious homes, art and literature, and of premiere importance: Etruscan food and the Etruscan national pastime of banqueting!
