Ancient Lycia

In my two “Trojan Peace” novels, Andromache comes originally from a land far to the southeast of Troy: the Lukka lands, now known as Lycia. This is a beautiful region of Turkey with many well-preserved ruins, the remains of a once-powerful federation of city-states. Xanthos, Olympos, Patara, Tlos, and the other cities of ancient Lycia formed a unique culture known for cooperation amongst each other but ferocity in the face of outside enemies. The following link has excellent resources on ancient Lycia: http://lycianturkey.com/lycian_sites.htm
