3.0 out of 5 stars The world of Odysseus, 4 Sep 2010
A Kid's Review
This review is from: The World of Odysseus (New York Review Books Classics) (Paperback)
This is an older investigation since the author died in 1986, so some of the information is now out dated. For example Finley observes that Troy vii(a) is a small village, whilst it is now becoming clear from Manfred Korfnamm's archeological investations that it was, in fact, a major, and well fortified city, with upper and lower cities as well as a rich hinterland. He fails to note that Troy lay at a junction of major trade routes, as well as being an important port. It has been proven to hold a position within the Hittite world similar to Australia to the United Kingdom, and did have an uneasy relationship with Greece, these facts have been discovered from translation of linear B tablets. The city was written in linear B as Troya and Ilios, there was at one time a Trojan king Alexandu. So although this book is a scholarly study, for a student seeking to write a dissertation there are better and more up to date sources of information.
