POST 5. UPDATE (archeological record)

Below is a link to a schematic drawing from Wilhelm Doerpfeld’s excavations of Troy, following up on Schliemann’s dig. One can see how the city was rebuilt in layers, one on top of the other, so that digging straight through to a particular layer without professional methodology and meticulous patience would destroy  valuable artifacts along the way. The link also has pictures of particular phases of the excavations, and projections of what certain layers might have once looked like. I meant to include this in Post #4,and apologize for not having done so.
