Gallipoli Troy

gallipoli troy

Troy is the name of the Bronze Age City featured in the Trojan War of ancient Greek  oral and literary tradition and the name given to the archaeological site in the north west of Asian Minor (now Turkey) which has revealed a large and prosperous city occupied over millennia. There has been much scholarly debate as to whether mythical Troy actually existed and if so whether the archaeological site was the same city; however, it is now almost universally accepted that the archaeological excavations have revealed the city of Homer’s Iliad. Other names for Troy include Hisarlik (Turkish), Ilios (Homer), Ilion (Greek) and Ilium (Roman).
