Archaeological Findings:  Ancient Troy

Troy is a city well-known to both history and legend (as well as archaeology), and was situated in northwest Anatolia in what is now Turkey. In 1865, English archaeologist Frank Calvert excavated trenches in a field bought from a local farmer at Hisarlık, and in 1868, Heinrich Schliemann, a wealthy German businessman and archaeologist, also began excavating in the area after a chance meeting with Calvert in Çanakkale and what they found has been generally been agreed upon to be this ancient city.
