Shadowland: The Hidden Etruscans

Shadowland: The Hidden Etruscans

No one knows where the VERY advanced race that we now call "The Etruscans" hailed from....

So, of course, every race from Africa to India claims to have KIN among them....

I have heard that recent DNA testing proves that they are of Turkish origin, possibly descendants of the Assyrians and Babylonians....

Wherever they came from, the Etruscans came to settle a region called "ETRURIA", which stretched from the Southern Tyrol, through the Po Valley, to the Appennine Mountain Peninsula, part of which is called "TUSCANY" today.

The early Etruscans were an advanced race that had a LOT to learn about interaction with the rest of humanity. The Greeks, Phonecians, Carthaginians Egyptians and Swedes that traded with them were awed at their technology, their perfectly straight roads, their flawless irrigation systems, Their talent for draining useless swampland and turning them into spectacular cities, but were mystified by their "naive" treatment of WOMEN. Why, in Etruscan society, women were equal men!

Can you imagine that?

But, the Etruscans were eager to learn the laws of the Greeks, the ways of the Egyptians, the military tactics of the Phonecians and the MINDS of the Swedes, for they had an enemy that were very much like the Berserker Vikings that arrived on Swedish ships to trade for fine GOLD and clever artistic metalwork, for which the Etruscans were famous the world over for....

And they were about to be discovered by a race of man that would soon seal their DOOM: The Romans.....

The Po Valley, beneath the Dolomite Crags of the Apennine Mountains, was hidden from the rest of the world by thick bands of fog that obscured the valley for seven months each year....

Anyone standing on these crags would see below them a world that just might as well be OCEAN, so the Etruscans were safe from invasion and discovery from the west for 500 years....

The Etruscans were organized into TWELVE City-States, covering an area that is today VENICE, Italy through Switzerland. They had ORE mines on ELBA, and held sway over the coasts of the Tyrrhenian Sea, from the mouth of the Tiber River to the borders of Tuscany.

By 500 BC, they were masters of the world....A group of Roman explorers discovered that there was LIFE down below, in that shadowed valley, life more incredible than any they had encountered as yet. ADVANCED life, far ahead of what Rome had yet accomplished...

The Etruscans taught the Romans EVERYTHING they knew, but the Romans detected WEAKNESS and a bit of DECADENCE in the Etruscans.

Etruscan Men showed affection OPENLY for their Etruscan Women. It was present in all their artwork. They held women in high esteem, drank with them, ate with them, showered with them, held hands in public....The Romans were astonished.....

The Roman explorers went back to their people with incredible, unbelievable tales of the people that inhabited shadowed PO Valley....

The Romans and Etruscans became cautious, tentative FRIENDS, and trade agreements sprang up between them, promises of friendship were made.....

In 400 BC, a great migration of a savage people changed life in the Po Valley Forever. The EIGHT tribes of the CELTS arrived one warm summer day, when the FOG and Haze of the Po Valley had lifted, and they were AVID for ALL that they saw......

The Celts had been trading with Etruria for some years, so they had some idea of the riches of the Etruscan people, but had no idea of the richness of Etruscan lands. The pressure of yearly invasions by savage Viking fleets pushed the Celts from their established lands along the Danube, over the Alpine mountains, into WAR with Etruria....
