The news item "Archaeologists announced the discovery of the Trojan horse" has been removed from publication due to inaccurate data in the source.

Greek and Israeli publications wrote that during excavations on the Hissarlik hill at the site of the city of Troy, fragments were found that may be parts of an ancient legend. It turned out that the scientists named in the publication work in other universities, which indicates that the news was fabricated. It was published by the Greek news publication Greek Reporter, and reprinted by the rather authoritative The Jerusalem Post, and completely repeating all the details of the Greek Reporter publication.

We checked the existence of archaeological scientists Christine Morris and Chris Wilson. As we managed to find out, such scientists do exist. But the first of them (a specialist in the Greek Bronze Age) works at Trinity College (Ireland), and the second, although an archaeologist, does not specialize in the Greek Bronze Age (and works in Australia). There is also Christopher Wilson, who previously worked at Boston College (not a university), but he is not a specialist in the Greek Bronze Age either. He is currently retired.
