Archaeologists Find Trojan War-Era Couple

Via Reuters. Archaeologists, led by University of Tubingen professor Ernst Pernicka, have found a burial dated by nearby pottery fragments to around 1200 BCE. Radiocarbon dating is expected to confirm that dating. Pernicka believes the location of the burial (near a mote) supports a larger perimeter for the city of Troy than previously theorized. Interesting stuff.
