The must for archaeology lovers… Despite all the glory of the name, the Troia site does not seem remarkable at a first glance. It tells a very different story, though, one of the histories of modern archaeology, as you can see the results of amateurish methods that Schliemann used in the 19th century. It is really impressive to view all 9 layers of Troia at one glance.
