Troy is complicated:
Even simplifying the plan a little:
- there is a lot of Troy. On the above map, we entered the site around the number 12 and I took the following photos:
At the foot of these stairs - and a few paces - I looked left:
I would give these engineers fill credit, altthough I do not understand the whys.
I took over 200 photos here - eh, wake up, I'm not finished! Oh, well. 2 more themes - just?
Schliemann's Graben or ditch or where things went bang:
- even today:
I knew a little about Troy before; I know a little more now. 2 hours can still be overwhelming - as can also 2 weeks. Troy was our last site before our return, tired but well satisfied with how smoothly everything had gone.
On the agenda next is a comparison of 2 contemporary sites: Knossos on Crete, and Akrotiri on Santorini. (Not today!)
