Archaeologists believe they found Odysseus palace on Ithaca island Greece
Greek archaeologists have claimed they have found the palace of Odysseus during excavations on the Ithaca island in the Ionian Sea.

On Tuesday, the archaeologist, Thanasis Papadopulos, who has been leading the excavation team on Odysseus' home island for 16 years, said that he knew the right place of the remains since 2006.

“We found the ruins of a three-level palace with a staircase carved into the rock,” Papadopulos said, adding that they also found a well, dating back to 13th century BC, when the Trojan War is believed to have taken place.

I gotta listen to the poem, just cause Sean's voice is so incredibly beautiful. Marking for later when I've more time.

Fascinating discovery!






I suppose now we have to worship Odysseus, since we found out there was SOME truth in the story.
