When Troy, at the southern end of the Dardanelles Strait leading to the Black Sea, was destroyed by the greek alliance circa 1100 B.C., the trojan sphere of influence had spread across the Hellespont as far as Macedonia and Boeotia, just to the north of Athens/Attica, so with the fall of the militarily and commercially strategic hub at Troy, the ionian Greeks took over, moving on into the Black Sea to build cities along its coastline too, with Troy then just one of many greek settlements on the way to and around the Black Sea.
So Troy no longer was of such great commercial importance, as the Greeks controlled all the coastline to and around the Black Sea, and the Trojans, some of them from Eretria, Boeotia, Greece, sailed to become the Etruscans of western Italy and Sardinia, in response to the population crunch at that time because of the mass migrations which characterized the period (see category Catastrophic Climate Change) when the bronze age was descending into the Dark Age, when the rapidly emerging Etruscan civilization rose to attain great wealth with extensive trade ties through their alliances with the tyrian Phoenicians, the namesakes of the Tyrhennian Sea off Italy.
And when Troy fell to the Greeks, ancient british histories record that Aeneas, with his family, including his father Anchises and son Ascanius, sailed to what would become known as Britian (named after Ascanius’s son Brutus, previously named Hibernia, after Heber, the biblical Eber), apparently bringing with them the language of the Trojans, reflected in the runic language recorded on stones from Britain and too across Scandinavia and Germany, including the inscripted word aesar, from the etruscan term aisar, meaning god or gods, Odin having been a great aesar of nordic legend who probably spoke the runic language, perhaps among others, but the runic certainly recorded on the stones, showing affinity to the etruscan, proof of the ancient maritme relationship, with even ancient rock art showing ships with sails, oars, and high double prows, much larger than the later viking vessels, perhaps even from ice age times, which ended much later than popularly advertised.
Etruscan bronze vanity mirrors from the 3rd century b.c. show characters from Homer’s quite historical Iliad and Odyssey, with Helen (Malavisch) of Troy, and one of the words above her, hinthial, meaning reflection or ghost, of the beautiful Helen, the ancient form of thinking the best of oneself when looking in the mirror I suppose, and Menelaos (Menles), with Clymtnmestra (Clutmsta), and Odysseus (Uthste), depicted on another mirror, reflecting (no pun intended) the clear linkange of Troy to Etruria, the land of the Etruscans, and ancient Britain too, with the arrival of Ascanius and co. there circa 1100 b.c., indicated in the british record.
And the ancient nordic units of distance were actually related to the ancient units of Britain, and perhaps Troy, like nearby Greece, mariners all, by the star mapping method simply described in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com, with 5 greek stadia (of 600 olympic feet each) composing the base perimeter length of the Great Pyramid of Giza, and the ancient nordic unit of length the fot, having been identical to the olympic greek foot, both 12.16 modern inches in length, derived from the wobble rate of the earth’s axis, certainly a universal measuring standard, no pun intended.
