Author John uses Homer's epics, the Iliad and Odyssey, as the foundation for his research. Composed around 2,700 years ago, these provided the Western world with the foundations of their literature and education. Yet despite their enormous influence on our culture, some scholars today doubt that Homer even existed. John's discovery adds a new and unexpected degree of integrity to Homer's descriptions of the Trojan landscape and presents knowledge that has been hidden from the world for over 2,500 years, giving Homeric scholars the opportunity to reappraise the historicity of both the Trojan War and Homer, perhaps the world's greatest epic poet. John, who hopes his revelations will enhance the credibility of Homer as a witness of ancient history, is inspired by John Lascelles who wrote Troy: The World Deceived - Homer's Guide to Pergamum and Robert Bittlestone's Odysseus Unbound. The Troy Deception will appeal to fans of history, in particular that concerning Ancient Greece, and scholars.
