Virgil - LIFE STORIES
 
 
6/11/1184     "Of arms and the man I sing"
On this day in 1184 BC, according to calculations made some 900 years later by the North African Greek, Eratosthenes, Troy was sacked and burned. The precise date is now regarded as pretty much a wild guess; the city itself, long thought to be as legendary, has been tentatively identified at Hissarlik, in present-day Turkey; the poetry made from the legends lives on.
