Thank you for posting this story. I had missed it. One of the (few) regrets I have about a trip to Rome earlier this year was that we didn't make it to the Villa Giulia collection or Tarquinia as I had hoped.

Thanks for posting, SJ.

>..he failed to mention where Fanum was situated, and after the fall of Rome, all memory of its exact location was lost.... from the 5th Century BC until the 15th Century AD, large numbers of people used to gather at Fanum every spring. <

If the location was lost, how come people gathered there for 1000 years?

Thanks for posting this, Steve. Very intersting.

We visited the Etruscan tomb escavation site below Orvieto. We were the only visitors there. One of those places where you can feel the presence of those who have gone before.
