Trojan tunnel?

DSC06323 - CopyIn my two “Trojan Peace” books, some of the characters make use of a tunnel leading out from the city of Troy to the surrounding lands. Was there really such a tunnel? Yes and no! In the archaeological site identified as Troy, archaeologists have indeed discovered a passage under the city to the plain below–it seems to be a passage relating to water storage/distribution. Their architectural abilities were astounding; this passage dates to the Late Bronze Age, or some 3300 years ago!
