    ok this is probably a long shot, and im expecting a negative answer, but in their travells, is it possible someone has come across Primary Sources about Etruscan burial?

    Thats the only thing that is driving me bonkers!!!!
    I'm afraid not... Is this your dissertation topic now, or can you still change? Finding sources can be a real headache at times... Could you tell us a bit about it, only if you have time of course, I'd be interested. Good luck!

    Hey, quick off topic question here.. Who was it that said "An Eye for an Eye?"
    I'm leaning towards Hamurabi's Code.. but I can't remember, and I'm too lazy to look at my notes.

    yeah, I knew that much. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. Its a good law, if not a bit barbaric.

    Funniest thing happened to me today (or perhaps it seems funny becuase im so tired? anyhow...) At my Gym they are having an "Olymipc" theme... reason obvious... anyway, in the change rooms they have up pictures of what they supposed were greek art.

    I was so very sorry to tell them that four were Etruscan, Two were Roman and the other one was Minoan... Not one greek piece among them!

    Since there are some other subject societies about, I thought it would be fitting to have a UKL History Society. I know a few people will be interested, so if you want to join, please reply or pm me. Everyone who's interested in History is welcome, not just those studying it at school or at university.
    Could I join please? History is my favourite subject.
