This Discovery of Troy and Its Lost History is a book that takes us back to ancient times to locate the actual location of Troy and the Trojan War. Compiled of over 30 years of research and dedication, this text seeks to provide evidence of the true location of Troy and the Trojan War. Using ancient texts, such as Homer's Iliad, as a guideline Jones takes us back to the Bronze Age to decipher the clues recorded in what has now been realized as a historical record. Jones takes information on landscapes and climates to piece together the actual voyage to Troy. He also uses astrological clues in his search to further confirm the voyage.
The visuals Jones uses throughout the text help create a visual of life back in the Bronze Age. Included in the visuals are photos of places that were believed to have been part of the journey to Troy. Also included in the visuals are maps and diagrams that allow the reader to easier understand the information of the text.
I was able to learn so much from this book. In the text Jones uses a variety of different forms of communication that allowed the information in the text to be followed and understood easier. There were a lot of interesting facts within the book, some of which were quite surprising. I really enjoyed how Jones was able to add in the myths and legends from that time period to further express what he has1 learned.
The text itself was well written and easy to understand. I recommend this text to anyone who is interested in learning more about Trojan History or anyone who has an interest in history in general.
