Odysseus’s palace ‘discovered’ on Ithaca

A team of archaeologists from the University of Ioannina say they have discovered Odysseus’s palace on Ithaca. They say they have found the remains of an extensive three-story building, with steps carved out of rock and fragments of pottery. The complex also features a well from the 8th century BC, roughly the period in which Odysseus is believed to have been king of Ithaca. Professor Thanassis Papadopoulos and his team have been digging there for 16 years.
