The Pelasgians

Salvete

Here is a question I want to throw into the group. Who are the Pelasgians? Where are they from? Does anyone know something? I thought that some scholars linked them with the Etruscans and that Herodotus was referring to the Etruscans when talking about the Pelasgians? Am I wrong?

Salve Orce,

There's a well-informed and quite extensive article on the Pelasgians on the Wikipedia :
