The site of ancient Troy has been excavated by scholars of many nationalities, including by a joint team from the University of Tübingen and the University of Cincinnati. Their website, Projekt Troia, provided a wide variety of information about the site and the excavation in both English and German. The current excavator is Rüstem Aslan.

The mound site of Hisarlık is generally believed to be the site of the Troy that features in Homer's Iliad. Settlement at the site began as an Early Bronze Age citadel in the third millennium B.C.
