    The Iliad by the pelasgian Homer describes the invasion of Troy near the Dardanelles Strait by the Mycenaeans circa 1200 b.c., that conquest having prompted mass migrations away from the region.  In the Aeneid by Virgil, the hero Aeneas sailed from Troy to Italy founding the pelasgian civilization of the Etruscans there, the undecifered Etruscan language no doubt ancient Pelasgian, similar to Albanian actually.

    A grandson of legendary Aeneas was Brutus (Brytys), who sailed on to become the namesake of Britain, and one of his sons there (and Albania?) was Albanactus, namesake of the Albans of what later would be known as Scotland, so it’s no surprise that the ancient Albans of the Shetland and Orkney islands were great navigators, then having sailed into the North Atlantic even to Canada in pursuit of walrus tusks, for their very valuable ivory, this history demonstrated in Farley Mowat’s book The Farfarers.

    The father of Anchises of Dardania and Troy was Ilus, namesake of Ilium and Iliad, and Troas was his father, namesake of Troy, whose father in turn was king Dardanus, namesake the Dardanelles, so you may wonder why the Dardanelles was named after a king from circa 1400 b.c. while it had been there for ostensibly many thousands of years before to have been named after a more ancient ancestor, but that strait which was named for Dardanus had just connected the world ocean to the Black Sea basin, which was a great inland lake during the Ice Age, seeing now please http://genesisveracityfoundation.com.
