They were the citizens of the city of Troy. Troy was located on the Dardanelles, and as well as the produce from its farmland, made a good living servicing the ships which sheltered on the protected beach near the city, waiting for favourable winds and tide coming to and from the Black Sea trade. As a rich city, it attracted the attention of the Greek pirate raids, and being walled for protection, is traditionally believed to have withstood a siege for several months in the 12th Century BCE and than been captured and looted. Archaeologists have located and dug a mound which contains several levels of a city site which was inhabited off and on over several centuries.
