Etruscans Language Culture Origin https://artof4elements.com/entry/etruscans-language-culture-origin

Learnings from Cyrillic Alphabet



History is a fascinating subject. Researching  or  even more so! We read amazing accounts about ancient  traditions such as Platonism, Orphism, Orthodox Christianity, and in China Taoism, and neo-Confucianism.


Etruscans origins

The insights from these traditions intersect with recent findings in metaphysics or biology. What brings the two into resonance is their mutual commitment to speak of the matter as alive. The four elements expressed through trinity that are defined by entangled triangle of relationships reflected in our language development.

Another visit to Serbia, this summer, and I was back researching the same scientific question, same puzzle that has certainly no answers yet it is an interesting exploration.

Were Slavs in Balkan as early as 431 BC? 

The genetic origins of Etruscans are mixed between aboriginal people of the region (Slavs?) and people from Europe predominantly Spain. The aboriginal population may have settled in Balkan millennia prior to the invasion.

Etruscan history 

The Etruscans occupied the region to the north of Rome, The Romans were their conquerors. 

The Greek historian Herodotus tells us that the Etruscans came from Lydia. Sure enough historians argue who are the Lydians. Herodotus tells us of their ships and multitude, claiming that the half of the population left under the leadership of Tyrrhenus. Another Greek historian, Dionysius of Halicarnassus, in his Early History of Rome also claims that the Etruscan were the aboriginal inhabitants of their area. Slavs?


The literature on the question of Etruscan origins divides into

1. Northern Origins

2. Oriental (Near-eastern) Origins

The aboriginal peoples of North Italy could have been Slavs. The Adriatic Sea, the sea to the east of Italy, bordering Croatia, Slovenia and Montenegro, all Slavic states, was named after the Etruscan port of Adria. The funerary practices of the people of North Italy has the parallel to the Vinča Culture. The Etruscans cremated their dead, a practice also known in the Danube Culture, no grave yards have been found near the settlements for thousands of years.

This very vibrant culture hosted different nationalities. In the Etruscan ruins there are objects from Greece, North Africa, and southern France. The Etruscan traders brought those craft objects to Etruria. The major exports of Etruria was copper and iron from the local mines, the same found with their Northern neighbors.

The affinities of the art and symbols found in the area resonate with spirals...

Etruscan and Linguistic Research

The question became more intriguing when, in the nineteenth century, it was discovered that most of the languages of Europe belonged to one big language family called Indo-European but Etruscan was not one of them. Is this rightly so?

The linguist claim that Etruscan was not a member of the Indo-European language family was challenged by some Slavic archelogy and linguistic researchers. These Balkan Slavs, find the inspiring relationship between words, just introducing the now, in scientific circles, lost Š, Đ, Č, Ć, Ž, DŽ.

A book that I have recently explored was The development of Etruscans Language from Svetislav Bilbija, his self-created dictionary of words with the alternative history of Slavs, claiming that Etruscans and Slavs were of the same ethnicity, 1984 New York print. He calls them “Rašani“.

The Story of Greece and Rome by Tony Spawforth
The Story of Greece and Rome - Tony Spawforth

TITLE:  The Story of Greece and Rome


AUTHOR:  Tony Spawforth




FORMAT:  Hardcover


ISBN-13:  9780300217117



"The extraordinary story of the intermingled civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome, spanning more than six millennia from the late Bronze Age to the seventh century

The magnificent civilization created by the ancient Greeks and Romans is the greatest legacy of the classical world. However, narratives about the “civilized” Greek and Roman empires resisting the barbarians at the gate are far from accurate. Tony Spawforth, an esteemed scholar, author, and media contributor, follows the thread of civilization through more than six millennia of history. His story reveals that Greek and Roman civilization, to varying degrees, was supremely and surprisingly receptive to external influences, particularly from the East.
From the rise of the Mycenaean world of the sixteenth century B.C., Spawforth traces a path through the ancient Aegean to the zenith of the Hellenic state and the rise of the Roman empire, the coming of Christianity and the consequences of the first caliphate. Deeply informed, provocative, and entirely fresh, this is the first and only accessible work that tells the extraordinary story of the classical world in its entirety.




This is a semi-fast paced, spotty, overview of the the history of Ancient Greece and Rome, interspersed with anecdotes or travel notes from the author.  The organisation of the information in the book is a bit erratic.  For example, the author will mention/quote Cicero but won't tell you who he is or why he is important until the end of the chapter or possible the next chapter.  I'm not sure that anyone new to Ancient Greece and Rome will be able to follow, or perhaps they won't know enough to know what is being left out?  This book does however have a nice collection of  maps throughout.

I prefer Ancient Greece by Thomas R. Martin and Ancient Rome by Thomas R. Martin, or Persian Fire by Tom Holland (for the Greeks and Persians) or even The Classical World by Robin Lane Fox.

Romeantically Challenged (When in Rome #1) by: Marina Adair
Romeantically Challenged (When in Rome #1) - Marina Adair




Romeantically Challenged by Marina Adair

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Adair continues to be one of my favorite authors. Her talent lies in allowing reading to bask in the humorous side of life without losing sight of the heart of it all. Romeantically Challenged puts it's best foot forward with beautifully flawed storytelling. Amid the what ifs, why mes and who am I is a sweetness that proves to be uniquely, endearing with irresistible, unpredictability. Annie and Emmitt force our emotions to think outside of the box and in these trying times that's something we all need.
