   The most significant Etrurian gravesite in Orvieto is the necropolis at the site now called 'Crocifisso di Tufo', one of the largest in central Italy.  Excavated during the 19th century, it has remained open to the public since, although the tombs are largely empty after the plundering of their contents for display in various museums abroad.
