Odysseus Unbound findings voted a Top Science Story by Discover magazine

America's Discover magazine has announced the results of its 'Year in Science' top stories for 2005. In the History of Science section the journal writes "Bittlestone says Odysseus' home is not the Greek island now called Itháki, as some believe, nor is it a creation of Homer’s imagination. The real Ithaca, he says, is the peninsula of Paliki on the western side of the island of Kefallinía in the Ionian Sea".
