The Schliemann Trench in the ruins of the Homeric city of Troy, Hill of Hissarlik, Turkey. <br />
Heinrich Schliemann, a German archaeologist, began excavations at Troy in 1868. At the bottom of the trench he found remains of walls belonging to the Early Troia I period c. 2920BC.  The rows of parallel rough stone walls are the foundations of relatively large, close-set houses of the Early Bronze Age. Troy was a city, both factual and legendary, in northwest Anatolia and was the setting of the Trojan Wars described in Homer's Iliad. Picture by Manuel Cohen
