Page Under Construction
The Greeks and Phoenicians took to the seas in search of trade in the first couple of centuries BC and were amazed to find a pre-existing advanced civilization in the area now known as Tuscany. These Etruscan people were keen to trade and through this they developed into a rich and sophisticated society which founded many cities including Rome, which eventually grew to become their nemesis.
