History of Troy


Ancient city of Asia Minor, also called Ilion or, in Latin, Ilium; known from Homer's account of the Trojan War in the Iliad. Excavations by Heinrich Schliemann and others identified the site of the ancient city as the mound called Hissarlik, in Asian Turkey. It was established as a Phrygian city, with a culture dating from the Bronze Age.
