I was reading this question about Troy and had an issue with it, but wanted to asked the rest of you as well.
Giving a decent answer to this question, beyond what one would or could read in a Wiki would take knowledge of and interest in Archaeology and perhaps Anthropology. One would have to be at least familiar with those fields in order to know whose opinions to find.
A question like this could sit, open and unanswered for some time, until the 'right person' with the attendant 'right interests' comes along, and either knows what to answer, or knows where to look to find it.
In my opinion, there will be at least one, or more, generic un-sourced, "inaccurate" answers given before one that SHOULD possibly be accepted is, if ever.
Should we leave questions open, waiting on just the right historian, one with interest in the specific field or fields, to answer? or do we close it as belonging to fields other than history, perhaps using the "questions on social sciences other than history" reason?
The main reason I'm asking this here, is that the person who asked this question is one who has had several questions closed/on-hold, and who doesn't seem to understand what we tell him in order to better word or 'fix' them, but would rather just complain that we are not being 'fair' to him or his questions. I didn't want to prod along his already dim view of our curation, but I have issues with this question.
