    I love the Iliad and the Odyssey, wonderful epic poems but they are fictional stories and they are not history like we understand history now. Neither are Herodotus stories. His are travelogues and...

    You guys are seriously arguing about myths? They found extremely few spear and arrow heads in and outside Troy in the layer corresponding to the "Trojan war". The citadel was rather compact. Maybe...
