Abstract

Did the Trojan War really happen? This question has challenged Homer's readers and listeners for over 2,500 years. The author re-examines the development of the tale of Troy through half a millennium of oral transmission, emphasizing what we learn about the tale from independent sources of information. Of particular importance is the information provided by our Anatolian sources, both written and archaeological. These may take us a considerable way towards a final answer to our question.
