AIA TALK: Desperate Etruscan Houswives

Did desperate Etruscan housewives cause the collapse of a whole civilization? Did the women's antics provoke a Roman army in 264 BC into leveling the rich Etruscan city of Volsinii (modern Orvieto)?

The AIA talk will be Monday 5 November 2007 at 7:30 PM in Chan Auditorium of the Administrative Science Building on the UAH Campus.
