Summary
"Where are the tombs of the Homeric heroes around Troy? Where are the outstanding features of the landscape - the rivers, springs, hills and mountains - that Homer sings so eloquently of in the Iliad? How can we find them? This book will help find the answers. It is the most comprehensive treatment of the subject since Professor J. V. Luce's Celebrating Homer's Landscapes: Troy and Ithaca Revisited was published by Yale University Press in 1998. Homeric sites around Troy traces the historical and contemporary search for the sites referred to by Homer in the Iliad and the Odyssey, and by others in the Trojan Cycle. These include the rivers Scamander and Simois, Mt Ida and Gargarus, the Hellespont, and the ship stations and ports of the Achaeans and the Trojans. Above all, it searches for the tombs of the fallen heroes: The Tomb of Laomedon; The Tomb of Myrina; The Tomb of Ilus; The Tomb and Grove of Hector; The Tomb of Priam; The Tomb of Paris; The Tomb of Aesyetes; The Tomb of Ajax; The Tomb of Achilles; The Tomb of Patroclus; The Tomb of Antilochus; The Tomb of Hecuba; The Tomb of Protesilaus. The reported visits to the sites are illuminating. In some cases, the author suggests locations that differ from tradition. The book reproduces many antique and old maps, summarizes the results of archaeological excavations, presents two new maps, contains many annotated excerpts of satellite imagery, and has many beautiful full-colour illustrations. There is much to be discovered in the book, and even more on the ground. Homeric sites around Troy is both evocative background for the reader of the Iliad, as well as a well-informed companion for a visitor to Troy."
