The Etruscans

The Etruscan civilization evolved in the west of Italy, but little is known about this people's origin. Some historians believe that the Etruscans emerged as a civilization from local Italian tribes; however, others believe that they may have emigrated from Anatolia (today's Turkey.) The Etruscans did not leave written records of their society, so what we know of them is learned from accounts by Greek and Roman writers. Their civilization is dated to about 907 BC.
