The Hill at Hissarlik
"Ah well, as I said my dear, I'm off to Troy and the hill at Hissarlik. I had an idea, you see, that as Troy was such an important trading city, it might also have been an observatory. You see there's a mention in The Iliad of Helen running like a mad woman to the observatory tower when she heard the Trojans were losing the battle."
