Bronze Age Etruscan sacred site found in Italy

An Etruscan holy site which dates back 3,000 years have been found 50 miles north of Rome.

A number of materials were linked to cult fires and “clear evidence of votive offerings,” Cardarelli said.

“Religious activities 1,000 years B.C. were carried out through fire,” he said. “Offerings were burnt for the gods — sacred objects, food or animals.”
