Description: 342 pp; modern update of the much-debated question of whether the city of Troy described by Homer in the ILLIAD was a poetic fistion of a memory of historical reality. Drawing on evidence uncovered in the 1988 excavations, in which the author was part of, it became clear that the background plot of the ILLIAD is the historical reality of the thirteenth century BC. The Troy story as a whole must have arisen on this perod, and traces of it are detected in Homer's great poem; well-llustrated with detailed line drawing maps and b & w photos
