While many people argue wherever the Trojan War happened but the general consensus among historians is that the City of troy does in fact exist but what is more subject to debate is wherever not the ten year war that is told in the story actually happened. Archaeologists who have been investigating the myth of Homer's poem believe the legendary war may have been a process rather than a single event. In one of Eric Cline Historical books he said that the Trojan War did took place, and that Homer chose to write about more than one of them by making it into a great ten-year-long epic saga. Archaeologists who have dug at the site said to be troy say, the site is made up nine cities built on top of each other. There is a citadel structure in the middle and a town surrounding it.
Cave Glyfada (or Vlihada ) Diroy is one of the most beautiful caves in the world . It is located on the west coast of the Laconian peninsula in the Bay of Diroy in the Municipality of Oitylou . The existence of the cave was known locally by 1900 . But no one suspected the miracle that was hiding inside until 1949 , when the founders of the Greek Speleological Society , John and Anna Petrocheilou began to explore the cave systematically . Until 1960 they had explored and mapped 1,600 meters , while today the known length of the cave is more than 15 km .
This paper will briefly explain the history and use of hieroglyphs in the Ancient Egyptian times. It started off as pictures that were drawn in caves and on rocks around 5000 BC.As time passed by, the pictures evolved and turned out to be the hieroglyphic scripts. The question was what do they mean and what were they used for? (Wilson, 2003, P.2) Scholars have spent so many years trying to decipher the script because they knew that deciphering the script was the key to understanding the Ancient Egyptian civilization. During Napoleon’s invasion of Egypt in 1799, a stone known as the “Rosetta Stone “ was discovered which helped decipher the hieroglyphs.
According to Dr. Smiley (vlec 2, 2014), two striking inventions emerged around 7000 BCE, which changed the course of this areas civilization because when villages began to settle, pottery and wells were needed. Well digging and pottery worked hand in hand and gave people the ability to live in the region year round. Interestingly, Chandler (2006) discovered an area called Masara (9000 BCE) was technologically advanced and possessed pottery, stone tools, arrowheads and elaborate jewelry, indicating that these types of products were considered a significant part of the Egyptian early civilization that continued to progress and evolve into what is characteristically Egyptian. In the Fayuum during 6000-5000 BCE, Dr. Smiley (vlec 4, 2014) discusses a form of pottery that incorporated temper, necessary ingredient to help the clay hold together, was used more like disposable containers. Afterwards came Badarian pottery possessing noticeably different techniques having the classically Upper Egyptian look of burnished black rims and brilliant red bases.

The French discovered the Rosetta Stone in an old wall in a fort in 1798. It was studied in Egypt, but when the British won over the French, the British shipped the stone to England in 1801. The stone is so important because it allowed people to read and understand hieroglyphs.
Based on geological considerations by Lubicz Schwaller and supported by Schoch Robert, the extreme erosion exhibited on the Great Sphinx’s body could not be a result of pure sand and water as it has been assumed by most geologists worldwide rather it was because of water. Geologists also confirm that Egypt in the distant past was mostly subjected to intense flooding. Furthermore, wind erosion cannot occur if the body of the Great Sphinx is covered up in sand, which has been its condition for almost five thousand years since its construction. If the wind was responsible for its erosion, then similar effects should be expected in other monuments in Egypt that were constructed using similar materials as that of the Great Sphinx. As a matter of fact, the structures, which were constructed using similar materials, have been exposed to the blowing of sand by wind though they do not exhibit minimal effects of wind erosion as the sand only did minimal scouring and cleaning of the stones.
The entrance to this cave is thirty-seven meters under sea level in the Mediterranean Sea. It is located by Cape Morgiou, in the Calanques, about twelve kilometers southeast of Marseilles. It is possible to enter the cave by slithering through water on the stomach through a one hundred and seventy five meter tunnel, after diving to the entrance. Though access to the Cosquer cave is now difficult because of the rise in the sea level when Ice Age glaciers thawed, they’re still thinking that the cave has never had an easy entrance. It is thought that the cave was probably ten kilometers from the coast during the Magdalenian period.

More so, the location of the paintings discloses crucial material for understanding (Curtis 142). Originally, paintings were congregated at the entrance of the caves, but eventually were moved farther inside. This reveals that these paintings were not necessarily showpieces, but more deep and personal expressions. Paintings toward the front of the caves often indicated and pointed towards an interior sanctuary, serving as a beckoning call (Berengu... ... middle of paper ... ...al fat.
