Troy is the location of the trojan war as described in Homer's Iliad. It was rediscovered in 1871 by German archeaologist/treasure hunter Heinrich Schliemann. It is believed that nine cities have been built over the same site over some three thousand years. Schliemann believed Troy II to be the one mentioned in the Iliad although evidence and modern opionion points to Troy VII.
