[quote="Charge_7"]Bwa ha ha ha! And Atlantis is in my swimming pool!

Maclaren and Schliemann are rolling in their graves if they aren't just laughing their boney asses off!

You know what's funny.

* Both Plato & Arstotle, great ancient Greek philosophers, doubted the greek origins of Homer's work.
* Herodotus, an ancient Greek historian, documented the Pelasgians (Sea Peoples) were already naming places within Greece before the Greek civilisation flowered.
* Homer describes The Troad a land of constant rain and mist. Doesn't sound much like Turkey.
* The site in Turkey currently being excavated as Troy was little more than hamlet at the end of the Bronze Age.
* The treasure Schliemann found that is supposed to be Priam's was carbon dated at 400BC. Almost a 1000 years after the Trojan war was supposed to have taken place.

Yes Maclaren and Schliemann are rolling in their graves. They were wrong.

Did you know that Aristotle thought the Greeks learned mathmatics and science from the Druids. The Druids were Celts.

Did you know that more than 10,000 bronze age artifacts (including many weapons and gear of war) have been found in the area Imam Wilkens believes is the site of the Trojan War? The site in Turkey cannot boast this.

What I found most interesting was his theory of the Trojan Horse.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not having a go at your opinion. I'm merely pointing out a few of the many inconsistencies between Homer's work and the presumption they have Geek origins.

Unfortunately I cannot at this time get hold of the book "Where Troy Once Stood" as it's currently out of print & our libraries don't seem to have it. Info about it on the web is limited.

Although this theory lacks conclusive evidence, the weight of circumstantial evidence does suggest it warrants more investigation. But to date I've been unable to find any information on whether or not investigations are being conducted in Cambridgeshire. What seems to be correct is the assumption that a large scale battle using Bronze Age weaponry did occur in the region of the Gog Magog hills.

Sure is amazing.

Apparently the war was not over Helen. But the control of the English Channel and North Sea. Control effectively meant control of the Tin trade. The only remaining productive Tin mines of the time were in England. And of course they needed Tin to make Bronze. Large civilisations (such as Egypt) could afford to buy it, but the Celts living in Gaul (Cessar named the area Gaul - roughly todays France) could not afford to buy large quantities of it. There only trade items were simple home made goods.

So Agememnon gathers a massive army (apparently 10 years in the making) and invades Troy.

The Author of the book 'Where Troy Once Stood' (Imam Wilkens) has a very interesting theory of the Trojan horse. Even if you believe the Greeks faught the Trojan war, his theory is still well worth reading.

well.....first we know this troy war from a dude named Homer...(means hostage), and it seems to be sure that he is living in the modern greek as a hostage from probably modern turkey.....

and there is a site discovered as troy near greek...

but it is really amazing how greek army can go to britain while later in Rome era ppl say no one has ever been to that island until Caesar's first expitation

You'll never prove it. Far more evidence exists for it being in Turkey.
