    >The city of Troy started as a simple settlement in around 3000 BC, growing and thriving on trade, agriculture and fishing. There were found to be nine major phases of construction before the city’s major destruction, in approximately 1180 BC.

    There was never any grand war at Troy but rather, Troy collapsed multiple times due to natural disasters (it is assumed). You can read further in the article. Troy was at an extremely strategic position at the mouth of the Dardanelles so they had control to the Black Sea and to trade between Greece and the Near East.

        Homer himself doesn’t even claim to be the primary source though. He lived hundreds of years after Troy’s demise.

      Comment is trash because the illad never claims that they levelled Troy to the ground and so the sacking wouldn't be well reflected in the archeological record.

        The Iliad doesn't mention the sack of Troy at all, it ends with Hector's funeral.

    Almost like it wasn't a complete encircling siege with nothing allowed in or out and more like an armed camp set up next to one gate, with heroes and their warband going up to the walls every so often and calling out another hero on the other side and then they have a fight, with the events of the Iliad representing only a few days of this.

    It wasn't an i.penetrable siege; the mycenens provably just made camp nearby without actually blocking the city

    Greekoids were never able to actually blockade the city. Food kept coming in.

    Maybe they were masters in manifesting. Or maybe they ate fairy tale food.
