Pictures of Troy

Just polishing up a quick article called "Did Troy Exist?" and after my research on Schliemann, Dorpfeld, and most recently Manfred Korfmann, I came across this site with photographs of the archaeological site of Troy, in Turkey.

Troy is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but this website is part of Livius: Articles on Ancient History. And that's all I know--except that the pictures are neat. This one is of the southern gate of Troy VI and VII--the Bronze Age fortress believed to be the Troy where Homer's Iliad is based. It was destroyed over 3000 years ago.
