Overview

Omer is renowned as the finest of the storytellers, whose tales of the myths and legends of ancient Greece were passed down by word of mouth for countless generations.

Overview

Omer is renowned as the finest of the storytellers, whose tales of the myths and legends of ancient Greece were passed down by word of mouth for countless generations. Yet, for some 2500 years there have been persistent folk memories; that his genius extended far beyond literature and that scientific knowledge was hidden in his stories of heroes and villains, gods and ghosts, monsters and witches. Research now reveals that at a time when the Greeks did not have a written script, Homer concealed an astonishing range of advanced astronomical knowledge in the Odyssey, his epic of the Fall of Troy and the adventures of the warrior king Odysseus. So effective is his system that it has remained secret for more than 2500 years. Breathtaking in scope, the codes are important in rolling back the history of ancient Greek astronomy by several centuries.
