Arguing that the events described in "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey" happened not in the Eastern Mediterranean, but in North-West Europe and the North Atlantic, this book goes further than merely tracing connections between Britain and Troy. The book argues that the Aegean/Mediterranean place names, like the "European" names in North America (Washington, Troy, Cambridge, Briton, etc) were established much later. The Homeric tales, it is claimed, do not fit the topography, geology, climate or Oceanic disturbances of the Eastern Mediterranean.
