EDITORS COMMENTS
1. Ruins of Troy: A Testament to Ancient Civilization at Hissarlik, Turkey The Ruins of Troy, located at the site of Hissarlik in Turkey, stand as a testament to the rich history and ancient civilization that once thrived in this region. Excavated by the renowned German archaeologist, Heinrich Schliemann, these visible ruins have captivated the imagination of scholars and visitors alike for over a century. Schliemann's groundbreaking discoveries at Troy began in the late 19th century, when he embarked on a massive trench excavation in search of the legendary city described in Homer's epics. Believing that he had unearthed the Homerian levels, Schliemann's dig site revealed a complex series of layers, each representing a different period in the city's history. Among the most notable discoveries at Troy was the South Gate, which is visible in this photograph. Dating back to Troy VI, this impressive gate is a reminder of the advanced engineering and architectural prowess of the ancient Trojans. However, Schliemann's excavation techniques were later criticized for cutting down below the most likely deposits, making it difficult to determine the exact chronology of the site. Despite these challenges, the Ruins of Troy continue to captivate and inspire researchers, as they offer valuable insights into the history and culture of the ancient world. The site remains an essential destination for anyone interested in archaeology, history, or the human story. This photograph captures the enduring allure of the Ruins of Troy, inviting us to explore the mysteries of the past and appreciate the ingenuity and resilience of ancient civilizations.
