A Journey to the HOMERIC Landscape TROY
100 Epic Journeys with old Maps, Gravures and total of 245 Images between 8th century BCE and 20th century
Travelogues have the function of a cultural mirror for the places in the period they were written.
Being a vivid description of time and space, reflecting the structure of the period in which they were written, gives us the opportunity to look at history from a different perspective.
In the past, traveling was an event in itself. Seas, mountains, and deserts were crossed, new places and people were met.
Whether the traveler's writings are long or short, from ancient Troia to Troy at the beginning of the 20th century, what is written, drawn, observed, and perceived about the city and region are important documents.
This book is a study on the evaluation of Troy interpretations in the works written by 100 important travelers who came to the Troy region, and each exhibited different characteristics from different perspectives.
"An attempt to tell the history of journeys as accurately and fully as can be done in a single volume"
It draws on a vast primary source material never before greatly available to researchers. It reflects no point of view other than an academic’s obligation to be as objective and fair as possible. It is written to be read as a reference source book by anyone from an academic to a high school student and especially by those in between.
