Thanks for the opportunity to answer your question!
Experts often disagree over which Troy was destroyed by the Mycenaean peoples. They considered whether it was the modern-day discovered VIh, which was a powerful and wealthy town with roomy, well-crafted buildings. Although the lost city of VIh fits Homer’s description, it appears to have been destroyed by an earthquake, not the War that he wrote about him. Another potential Troy that was discovered, VIIa, was characterized to be poor and overpopulated, and destroyed by fire after a period of only 30 years. However, this town seems to have had a siege mentality, with traces of people from the countryside crowding into the town for protection. Ultimately, whatever city is the real Troy is open to debate.
