Etruscan tombs

THE ETRUSCAN TOMBS OF BADGER AND SCARAB BEETLE

In 2007 the cultural association “Odysseus” (young archaeologists free working), in cooperation with municipality of Civitella-Paganico and the Tuscan Office for archaeological heritage, discovered, between Casal di Pari and Casenovole, an intact etruscan tomb (III-I century b.C.). Inside there were human bones and cinerary vases containing hunman ashes. It is a great discovery. With the ashes there werw also golden jewels and bronze coins.

 In 2009, in the same area, the archaeological association discovered another tomb (IV-III century b.C.). The tomb, already profaned in ancient periods, contained many well preserved skeletons. Inside there were also a golden ear-ring and a golden ring with a vitreous scarab beetle.   

Very probabily there is a complete necropolis. The Etruscan tombs are near an old last century cemetery: it seems to mean a continuity of the holy area.

The etruscan village was probabily over the necropolis on the hill where now you see the medieval castle of Casenovole.
