DENNIS, George

   A British diplomat who wrote Cities and Cemeteries of Etruria, with illustrations by Samuel Ainsley. This work was first published in 1848, but its popularity led to three further expanded and/or popularized editions (1878, 1883, and 1907). Its importance lies not only in publicizing the Etruscans in the English-speaking world and recording some details now lost, but in founding a landscape vision of the Etruscans that was only properly developed again for Etruscan studies about a century later with the work of John Ward-Perkins and Tim Potter at the British School at Rome.
