Where is the Ithaca described in such detail in Homer's Odyssey? This highly illustrated book tells the extraordinary story of the exciting recent discovery of its true location. Literary, geological and archaeological clues are carefully examined to solve a problem which has baffled scholars for over two millennia. We can now identify all the places on the island mentioned in the epic-even the site of Odysseus' Palace. Over a century after Schliemann's discovery of Troy, this breakthrough will revolutionise our understanding of Homer's texts and of Bronze Age Greece.
