Etruscan Necropolises of Cerveteri
Lazio

wikipedia: La necropoli etrusca della Banditaccia è posta su un'altura tufacea a nord-ovest di Cerveteri (RM), e nei suoi circa 400 ettari di estensione si trovano molte migliaia di sepolture (la parte recintata e visitabile rappresenta soli 10 ettari di estensione e conta circa 400 tumuli), dalle più antiche del periodo villanoviano (IX secolo a.C.) alle più "recenti" del periodo etrusco (III secolo a.C.). La sua origine va ricercata in un nucleo di tombe villanoviane nella località Cava della Pozzolana, ed il nome "Banditaccia" deriva dal fatto che dalla fine dell'Ottocento la zona viene "bandita", cioè affittata tramite bando, dai proprietari terrieri di Cerveteri a favore della popolazione locale. Vista la sua imponenza, la Necropoli della Banditaccia è la necropoli antica più estesa di tutta l'area mediterranea.


Le sepolture più antiche sono villanoviane (dal IX secolo a.C. all'VIII secolo a.C.), e sono caratterizzate dalla forma a pozzetto, dove venivano custodite le ceneri del defunto, o dalle fosse per l'inumazione.

    More About Italy

    The name "Italy" is shrouded in mystery; some etymologists trace it to a Greek word meaning "the land of young cattle."Italy was fond of Jupiter and Mars from the very start, Jupiter for fatherly good luck and Mars for war!But it all began with Rome. Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus who were sons of Rhea and Mars.The twins were abandoned at birth out of a fear that they would grow up and later overthrow Amelius, usurper of their grandfather's rightful throne.Wrongful mis-doings most foul! Treachery and sabotage!! HOW would these two blessed infants make their way in such a world?As it turns out, the twins didn't have to make their way very far, because one of them killed the other one and then they weren't twins anymore. But that happens later.First they got rescued by a she-wolf who suckled them with her milk and raised them as her own until they were discovered by the shepherd Faustulus.Faustulus fed them meat and bread and also raised them as his own until they were old enough to return to Amelius and hack him up as planned. They reinstated the grandfather Numitor to his rightful throne and went off to celebrate by starting a town of their own.They chose a hilly area where the mama wolf had saved them from certain death in the barren wilderness and began scouting locations.Romulus liked one hill. Remus liked another. The circle of crows like Romulus' hill, so Romulus killed Remus and named the town after himself. Thus Rome was born and Italy with it.Text by Steve Smith.
