An Etruscan temple dating back to the fifth century BCE was recently discovered in the ancient city of Vulci in Latium, Italy, the University of Freiburg announced on Thursday. The building measures 45x35 meters and is located west of a sacred structure called Tempio Grande. An initial examination of the rocks in the foundation of the temple, as well as artifacts that were found there, enabled the researchers, led by Dr. Mariachiara Franceschini of the University of Freiburg and Paul P. Pasieka of the University of Mainz, to determine that the temple was built around the end of the sixth or the beginning of the fifth century BCE.
