Leading US classical scholars support Odysseus Unbound

James Holoka, Professor of Classics and Ancient History, Eastern Michigan University: "It is not possible in a short review to convey how methodically both textual and topographic evidence are harmonized in Bittlestone’s riveting argument. His case for equating Paliki with Ithaca is breathtakingly cogent. Site after site is shown to jibe with the details of Homer’s narrative."

Peter Green, Dougherty Centennial Professor Emeritus of Classics at the University of Texas at Austin and Adjunct Professor at the University of Iowa: "Bittlestone's theory is fundamentally simple, and starts, as did those of Schliemann, from the firm assumption that Homer was telling the truth… This, in a nutshell, is his solution to the "Ithaca Question," and it is almost certainly correct…This confirmation of literary inference by the heavy weapons of modern science and technology is a major triumph."
