Ever since my earlier archaological digs and flint knapping and an early essay on Troy, quite unplanned that had my strict Headmaster quite aghast (even myself). I expect it was something hidden within my psyche who knows a former life, I hesitate to go there.

Notwithstanding that, this book describes not just the story of Troy but theories of whether it did exist, with recent archaeological finds. The work done at Troy by Schliemann is portrayed, also the work of Dorpfeld, Blegen and more recently the modern methods of the recently belated Professor Manfred Korfmann and the theories of of Joachim Latacz is explored with emphasis on the University of Tuebingen TROIA Project which is consistently attracting International attention.

Not only is Troy portrayed but the travels of John Morritt to locate the site of Troy..The interesting way Morritt circumnavigates the French Napoleonic Armies makes one wonder if he was on a clandestine mission to record topography as he later makes un-historical observations of military movements, in an area the French Navy were to invade to reach Egypt & etc. If the reader receives any emolument from this I will consider that I have done my part. If not I recomend it heartedly as a sure-fire cure for insomnia. Robert D. Morrit
