Troy to be Excavated Again

A team of archaeologists is preparing to excavate at what is believed to be the site of Troy in Turkey starting next year. Archaeological investigations have taken place at this site numerous times since Heinrich Schliemann first worked here in 1871. Conclusive proof that this is the place where the war immortalized in Homer's tale "The Illiad" has never been found.

Here is a link to a short article on the planned excavations.
