    Online resources for Etruscan: surfing between teaching and the 'mystery'

    Daniele Maras

    The seminar presents an introduction to Etruscan writing, together with some of the most important resources about it available online. Institutional sites and university-based research tools are described, as well as others appropriate for enthusiasts or for school-aged students. There is also a review of bibliographic information and web sites, and of "alternative" sites that remain outside of mainstream academia. This latter phenomenon is common in Etruscology, which often feeds on the traditional (if unfounded) "mystery" with which this population has been regarded since antiquity.
