Sedimentary Facies Patterns and the Interpretation of Paleogeographies of Ancient Troia
We present a series of maps of ancient geographies in the Aegean area, based on sedimentological and fossil evidence. Coupled with information from the Classics and comparative modern vs. ancient analogs, we present interpretations of geographic changes in the vicinity of Troia over the past six millennia. Our geomorphologies of ancient Troia might well aid classicists and archaeologists in their understanding of the past and the events in Homer’s Iliad.
