Jan 5th 2007 6:12AM It is unfortunate that Neil Woodburn in "Disappointing Troy" relied on someone else's description rather than going there. Yes, the wooden horse is cartoonish. Also, poking around ancient archaeological ruins is not for everyone. However, I'm glad that I spent a couple hours there going to the various excavations in the NINE layers called Troy, the earliest dating back to 3,000 BC. There is also a museum that has some of the finds and does have an understated display on the man who finally located it (Schliemann) that usually incites laughs or gasps. If you want to see restored homes and temples, Troy is not for you. If you want to see current work conducted by people from around the world and understand the historical significant of the nine cities of Troy, you will be quite pleased.
