Andromache’s Home Before Troy: Part II

“My” Andromache from my two “Trojan Peace” novels was born far to the southeast of Troy, in a region of modern-day Turkey known as Lycia. Back in the late Bronze Age (before 1100 BC, give or take), the powerful Hittite Empire called this region the “Lukka lands.” This beautiful area on Turkey’s Mediterranean Coast is still rather wild, with mountains, beaches, and bay laurel forests. It’s an intoxicating place!
