ABOUT THE BOOK
The mysterious places of Homer are explored in this most extensively illustrated account of the landscape around Troy. Over 170 photographs, 38 old paintings and drawings, 31 historical maps, 27 annotated excerpts from satellite imagery, and two new maps guide the reader in search of the sites celebrated in the Iliad and the Odyssey – the rivers, springs, mountains, the Hellespont, the ships’ camps, and the heroic tombs. The book analyses the Homeric and literary sources, traces the historical and contemporary search for the sites, and summarizes the results of archaeological excavations. The findings are surprising.
