Troy - Using Uranium and Homer to Find Truth

Modern technology and ancient writings help scholars to search for the truth about Troy.  In this clip, from a BBC documentary on the subject, historians reach a rather startling conclusion.  According to the BBC:

A scientist discovers uranium in ancient tunnels around the area that is considered to be Troy and helps to date the tunnels to the time of the alleged battles. No longer is the Trojan War a myth, now it is a condensed version of historical battles that took place over a number of years.
