Homer's bust 

Videos of sites around Troy

This is a list of the videos on the Homeric sites channel on YouTube. Many of the videos are linked to from the eBook of Homeric sites around Troy.

The videos are short. There is no music, only the sound of wind, water, birds or bells. There is no commentary, only the occasional sub-title to identify details. The date on which each video was taken is recorded on the final frame.

The purpose is to expand on what can be seen in Homeric sites around Troy where the significance of the sites is discussed.
