Literary Landmarks: Troy

Troy Troy, with its 4,000 years of history and nine levels, is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. Troy is directly associated with the literary works of Homer (The Iliad) and Virgil (The Aeneid), The siege of Troy by Spartan and Achaean warriors from Greece in the 13th or 12th century B.C., immortalized by Homer in the Iliad, has inspired great creative artists throughout the world ever since. The first excavations at the site were undertaken by Heinrich Schliemann in 1870 and are still ongoing.
