Hypogeum of the Volumnis

Project Resources

Located near Perugia, Italy, the Hypogeum of the Volumnis is the ancient Etruscan tomb of the Velimna family, and a monument to one of the early Italic civilizations. The underground burial chamber reflects the form of a traditional Etruscan house and offers a rare glimpse into their culture and burial practices. Most of Etruscan material culture was destroyed by the Romans, making this tomb an excellent candidate for digital preservation.
