Homer is such a wonderful author, and his descriptions so accurate; it would be something to find the Ithaca he describes! Like my brother John, I studied Classics (Latin and Greek) at university, and I am pleased to support the work of the Foundation.

Homer's Odyssey is a wonderful tale of adventure and fortitude in the face of constant challenges. Having been shown Bronze Age sites on Kefalonia by John Crawshaw, it is a pleasure to contribute to this modern-day challenge, involving the use of the latest scientific techniques, to identify Odysseus' homeland for posterity.

Odysseus is the main figure in Homer’s epic masterpieces and yet we still have not found his home! So much of the history told in these stories has been documented archaeologically and the transition Odysseus makes from the Iliad to the Odyssey is a remarkably accurate portrayal of maturation, understood from a psychological perspective. For all these reasons, historical, archaeological, literary and psychological, finding Odysseus’ home Is important!

My interest in the project stems from my love of science, archaeology, and the history of ancient civilizations, in particular Greek civilization. It is especially pleasing when science and archaeology combine to pull back the veil of obscurity surrounding ancient sagas and myths, revealing some of their truths as they relate to ancient civilizations. For example, this has already been demonstrated for Homer’s Iliad at Troy and Mycenae. To definitively identify the Paliki Peninsula of modern day Kefalonia Island as Odysseus’ Ithaca would be another major landmark in archaeology and for the history of classic literature and civilization.
