City of Troy still hidden in floodplain
17 May 2015

The Turkish archaeological journal Olba today published an article which claims that the Bronze Age city of Troy has never been found. It lies 5 m deep buried in the Karamenderes floodpain, a few hundred meters west of the site of Hisarlik. Swiss geoarchaeologist Eberhard Zangger and Turkish archaeologist Serdal Mutlu jointly reconstructed the water management system that may have existed at Troy.
