The Burning of Troy

I checked the index printed right on the poster and sure enough, there was Troy – between 1200 and 1100 BC in the Greek line.  I went to that section and found “Trojan Wars 1184 BC”  It was an easy to check the Biblical events for those same years to find Samuel was the prophet during the time of the Judges.  For the following I also used the index to find Homer, Alexander the Great and more.

Here’s more about Troy and the Bible:
