Last updated: March 19, 2019 at 12:32 pm
[ 1194 BCE ] Homer writes of divers attacking ships during the Trojan War in the Iliad.
Whether there is any historical reality behind the Trojan War remains an open question. Many scholars believe that there is a historical core to the tale, though this may simply mean that the Homeric stories are a fusion of various tales of sieges and expeditions by Mycenaean Greeks during the Bronze Age.¹
