For at least two thousand years scholars have debated the location of Troy and the events and geographic features described in Homer's Iliad. Geologic evidence is used to present a series of maps of the Trojan plain that show the geomorphic changes over the past six millennia. The geologic evidence correlates very well with the relevant Homeric geography.
