He suggests that Homer based his story on an earlier oral tale from Northern Europe in which an area of Southern England was attacked by Celts who wanted control of the tin mines there. Wilkens suggests that Troy was located in the Gog Magog Hills near Cambridge. Furthermore, the area Homer called ‘Crete’ was Scandinavia, ‘Sparta’ was in Spain and ‘Lesbos’ was actually the Isle of Wight. The Iliad’s warriors use horses in battle but the Greeks always fought on foot until around the 3rd century ad. The Iliad doesn’t mention ‘Greeks’ anywhere.

It started badly enough when he said to her "Let's go out and have some fun tonight! " She thought it was a brilliant idea but asked him to make sure he left the hall light on if he got back first. He phoned Dave and Phill to see if they wanted to go out but it seemed they had other plans. He staggered home after a couple of pints to find that his wife wasn't out at all but she had invited a guest to stay and they were getting very friendly too.

Sherlock worked out that we needed to speak to one of the bankers, ▓▓▓▓▓ ▓▓▓ ▓▓▓▓. But Sherlock, of course, had noticed from every little thing in the flat that ▓▓▓ ▓▓▓▓ was left-handed and that the gun was in his right hand. Then, almost as if to confirm that what Sherlock was saying was true, there was another murder. To cut a long story short, I found myself at the police station, reading ▓▓▓▓▓ ▓▓▓▓▓'s diary.
