Reviews for The Baltic Origins of Homer's Epic Tales

  • Makes his case in spite of several flaws3

    Colin Bayler Vinci does a very credible job of proving that Homer's epic tales actually took place in the far north and were brought to the Mediterranean by the populace when they moved south. They tried to transcribed the locations of their homeland onto their new environment and failed in many places. This explains why scholars have been puzzled by the many inconsistencies in the stories.

    There were only two problems I had with the book: it needed more maps and could have benefited from some actual pictures of the areas he was describing. He also blew it at the very end when, almost as an afterthought, he tried to claim that ancient biblical history could have originated from this area as well. Since this was speculation and not proven as was Homer's stories, it should have been left out. It tainted an otherwise well researched book.

    Vinci succeeded in what he set out to do and proves that history is malleable and not set in stone like many believe. by Colin Bayler
