    This is a fun book if you're interested in the Trojan War and Homer He tries to place the events of the Iliad and Odyssey in the real geography of the surroundings of Troy and Ithaca Some of his suggestions may stretch a little but many seem entirely likely or as likely as we're going to get at this point Some of his discussions such as the shoreline of Troy's ancient bay that has now been silted in are accurate but now a little dated since this issue has continued to be researched and some of his suggestions are no longer entirely accepted but his overall description continues to be valid His photographs are great the next best thing to being there If you're interested in Troy and Homer go to wwwjudithstarkstoncom
