The Ancient Greeks needed to deceive the Romans about the time and location of the Trojan War. At Ilios and Troy, their ancestors had destroyed the ancestral home and empire of Rome?s leading families. From the 5th century BC, they watched Rome become the world?s greatest military power. How could they avoid blood feud and genocide? They used their intellectual prestige to minimize the Trojan War?s potential for harm. They set back the war four hundred years into pre-history. They separated the war from the settlement of Ionia and the founding of Rome. They created confusion in history and two thousand years of controversy. They survived. Homer guides you in finding Ilios and Troy around the greatest acropolis east of the Aegean Sea. You will realize that the Trojan War began the Western civilization.
