    Of course, the Trojan War was undoubtedly a myth. Many people in ancient times enjoyed hearing this myth as told by numerous authors and story-tellers.

    One of its biggest effect in modern times has been the enjoyment of reading about Troy. Some of the terms, such as "Trojan Horse" have entered our language. Many archaeologists have worked at excavating this site. Turkey has benefitted economically from the millions of tourists who visit the supposed site of ancient Troy. When I was there, not only did I tour the site, but bought a T-shirt with an original picture from a local artist.
