Apart from playing a fundamental role in the collective identity of European nations, Homer and Troy have also inspired Ottoman-Turkish cultural traditions. Günnay Uslu’s research brings together Ottoman and European experiences regarding Homer and Troy, including the Ottoman perspective on and involvement in the history of the archaeological excavations and research relating to Troy. Through detailed examinations of Ottoman documents and literature, she demonstrates that the Ottomans were much more interested in the Homeric heritage than previously acknowledged.
