There has been plenty of TV shows that have centered on finding the settings of the poems through the sciences of archaeology and anthropology Most of the evidence presented has been inconclusive at bestNow here comes a book that proposes that the action of the poems took place in the far north Can it be possible? The answer is yes it can but it is only a possibilityThe author is careful to emphasize throughout that what he is presenting is a theory and science needs to be brought in to validate what he is proposing What is true is that the climate was much warmer during the era the poems are set in and human settlements have been found well above the arctic circle He is able to show where the locations that Homer refers to could have taken place in various parts of Scandinavia the Baltic regions and even areas of BritainThe text has been admirably translated from the Italian and makes for fun and intriguing reading Can any of what the author is proposing be possibly true? It is impossible to say It's a good reminder that history as we know it is not set in stone that it can change and fluctuate like anything else While most historians and archaeologists dismiss this theory there are a few who are open to itThe takeaway for me was as we are now at the beginning of a climatic warming this book serves as a reminder of how the earth's climate has changed over the millenia and how this has impacted the migration of humans Food for thought indeed
