Homer's bust 

Videos of sites around Ithaca

This is a list of the videos on YouTube made by the author of In search of Homeric Ithaca (Parrot Press, 2020).

The videos are short. They do not tell a story. They show a place or a scene. Sometimes they show a 360-degree panorama from a viewpoint. There is no commentary, only the occasional sub-title to identify details. There is no music, only the sound of wind, water, birds or bells. 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 In search of Homeric Ithaca where the Homeric significance of the sites is discussed.
