Giant tomb uncovered at Etruscan necropolis in Italy

Barbarano Romano: According to an ArtNet News report, a large rock-cut tomb was uncovered in the San Giuliano Rock Necropolis during an effort to clear plant overgrowth.

Burials in the Etruscan necropolis, which is located in central Italy, date from the seventh century to the third century B.C.

This giant structure was dug into a rock wall so that only one side is open. It is located next to the so-called Queen’s Tomb, the largest in the necropolis.

The Queen’s Tomb dates to the fifth century B.C. and features side stairs leading to an upper terrace. Two doors lead into twin funeral chambers with benches within the Queen’s Tomb.
