Explore the Levels of Troy
Archaeologists call a site like Troy a “tell.”

A tell is a human settlement built up over many years. When one city collapses or burns down, a new city is built on top. Eventually we are left with a big mound, in layers. Troy has nine main layers, or levels. Pick a Level of Troy from the timeline below, and find out more.
