The Villanovans brought with them a reasonably advanced Iron Age culture, closely related to the Hallstatt culture of the Est Alps. They lived over a large part of central Italy, including Etruria, Latium, and the region around Bologna. The Villanovans cremated their dead and buried the ashes in urns.
