Controversial New Article on Greek Archaeology and Palaeography

Of course the Iliad isn't reliable. After all, it treats Troy as an historical city, the Trojan Horse as an historical artifact, Hector as an historical figure, and Athena as a living entity capable of influencing history. German scholarship has long debunked all such archaic notions.
