Ancient Troy; Modern landscape

What makes the ancient city of Troy so amazing? The history there dates back at least 5000 years; each layer of the city was mounded on top of the next until it formed a hill, called a tell. Time has long since covered the ruins of these civilizations–but the tell is still alive with a host of plants and animals. Butterflies, birds, lizards, tortoises, and squirrels make their home there among the summer flowers.
