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)? Come find out in a talk by Dr. Jean Turfa of the University of Pennsylvania's Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. 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. The following day, Dr. Turfa will speak on "Love and Death in Etruscan Urns," in the Multi-Purpose Room of Frank Franz Hall at 11:10 AM. Please bring a friend. For more information, call 824-6114.
