Has the legendary city of Troy described by Homer in the Iliad ever existed? For centuries, the question has sparked much controversy. And if the answer is positive, did the Trojan War really take place? Early explorers of the 19th century tried their best to match their findings with the descriptions scattered in the famous ancient epic poem. But doubt remained. Today, modern archaeological techniques finally provide answers and give voice to the remains unearthed at the Hissarlik site in Turkey.
