Excavations at the Parco Naturalistico Archeologico di Vulci (Vulci Archaeological Naturalistic Park) north of Rome have revealed an Etruscan tomb that dates from the late 7th century BC.
…
The tomb is believed to have been that of a woman. The grave goods buried with the body are all intact. Archaeologists discovered painted beads, an iron fibula ancient brooch, jars and a bucchero in a Corinthian style – a bucchero is a type of ceramic black pot with a glossy surface made by the Etruscans. The items have been transferred to a laboratory in Montalto di Castro for restoration.
Excavations at the site are ongoing. Experts hope they will discover more items that are helping them to build a picture of the daily life for the Etruscans and their burial practices.
In spring 2013, archaeologists unearthed an Egyptian scarab at the site. The scarab depicts the falcon-headed Egyptian god Horus and is thought to date from 746 BC to 525 BC.
