 Troy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Today it is the name of an archaeological site, the traditional location of Homeric Troy, Turkish Truva, in Hisarlık (39°58′N 26°13′E) in Anatolia, close to the seacoast in what is now Çanakkale province in northwest Turkey, southwest of the Dardanelles under Mount Ida.
The site of the ancient city today is some 15 kilometers from the coast, but the ancient mouths of Scamander, some 3,000 years ago, were some 5 kilometers further inland, pouring into a bay that has since been filled with alluvial material.
A small minority of contemporary scholars argue that Homeric Troy was not in Anatolia, but located elsewhere: England[4], Croatia, and Scandinavia have been proposed.
