Why is Troy special for history?

Troy and Trojan war became famous thanks to Homer’s Iliada and Greeks’ historical records. It was thought that Trojan war and Troy were fantasy. Although the records describe us a great wealthy site and a legendary war, we couldn’t have concrete proves on them for centuries.

A treasure hunter who grew up with the story of them came to Ottoman Empire. He excavated all ancient site (with damages). At least finally he discovered that this site could be Troy. He found some traces from the ancient site and the legendary war of Troy. The appearence is that Troy and Trojan war are true. This point makes this site special because a historical story became true. Troy was the place where the history became a real body.
