This paper is inspired by the hope that a permanent teaching post in Etruscan and Early Italic Studies will be established at Oxford University in the foreseeable future. Its aim is to illustrate some of the reasons why it is singularly appropriate to include the study of the Etruscans and their civilisation in university-level teaching and research in Classical and European Archaeology. In particular, certain aspects of the relationship between the Etruscan civilisation and its Greek and Roman counterparts are reviewed; so too are modern attitudes to the Etruscans, some of which (especially in Britain) are giving cause for concern.
