These pieces of archaeological and written evidence establish that the Greeks had the power and resources to rage a war on Troy, supporting the idea of the Trojan War.
Close assessment on the stratification of Troy also proves that a war could have occurred.
However the unreliability of The Iliad places historical doubt on Homeric Troy.
But although there are various inconsistencies in the evidence to support Homeric Troy, the existence of the Trojan War itself is indisputable.
But, if the gods or goddesses do not exist, then how did the Trojan War start in the first place?
The story that most people know as to what started the war is a myth involving the goddesses and what archeologists have so far found; no one is exactly sure what started the war.So finally, someone suggested that the three goddesses should let a mortal choose; Priam's son, Paris, was designated to cho...There has been no direct answer to the above question.The description of both the war and the reason behind the war became far too romantic to believe as time passed; a dispute over a woman would have been believable in the past but because historians began to look upon the Iliad realistically, they have been able to identify the inconsistencies in the story.These inconsistencies in the evidence help to disprove the events describe by Homer but nonetheless, the existence of the Trojan War itself is indisputable. When Eris discovered that there was a wedding going on that she had not been invited to she decided to get back at all who went.She decided to roll an apple into the reception of the wedding, but she put an inscription on the apple that intended it for the most beautiful goddess at the wedding.Homer also mentioned a description of the Great Tower of Iilios and Troy's triumphant horses.Troy VI, as examined by Dorpfield, possessed the same high quality angular walls that Homer had described in the Illiad.The various pieces of evidence, both written and archaeological provide substantial reasoning for the existence of a war occurring in Troy during the 13th century.However, modern historians can never be completely sure that the story that Homer provided in the Iliad was precise due to the holes that appear in the story and the evidence.
