The Trojan Horse — with soldiers inside —  depicted on a vase found on Mykonos.

Couldn't dozens of long planks in Greece just as likely be parts intended for a ship? There was supposedly one trojan horse, but according to the same tale, 1000 ships.

As well, wasn't Troy in Asia Minor?

I agree.    Also, it is not like wood planks were not used for other things.    Seems like it is possible but not probable that these are from the horse.

It is the best evidence yet that those Turkish Greeks came from the Moon in an enormous wooden spaceship!

Must have been the far side, because there aint no trees growing on the near side.

It's a pile of wood. Could literally have been anything.

If the horse even existed, don't you think it would have been burned out of spite at some point? Were the losers really going to keep it around as a memento?

Maybe they'll find Noah's Ark soon.

Interesting, the UM article says

Pieces of wood allegedly belonging to the iconic wooden horse have been reportedly discovered in Greece.

While the article itself says

Archaeologists Claim They’ve Discovered the Trojan Horse in Turkey

The article says they discovered it around Troy, which is in Anatolia, which is Turkey. Unless I am missing something?

How do they know the planks of wood aren't a part of Noah's Ark? Or pieces of the True Cross?

No one’s /selling/ them, so probably not.

Good point. I was also confused about that. I don't think there is any way they would bring back the horse to Greece, would it even fit on a ship, so if there are remains of it, it would be in Turkey.

From the article:

Quote

Another discovery that supports the archaeologists’ claims is a damaged bronze plate with the inscription “For their return home, the Greeks dedicate this offering to Athena.” Quintus Smyrnaeus refers to the particular plate in his epic poem “Posthomerica.” The plate was also found on the site.

Still not convinced, but it makes the claim stronger.

One idea is that the Trojan horse was made from a boat/ship.
