Homer (not Simpson)

News sources have picked up this story in which two classical scholars have "pulled an Ussher" and set the precise chronology of Odysseus' homecoming at... April 16, 1178 B.C. This is why anthropology granting organizations don't fund me. They assume I'm doing inane pseudo-research, that I'm convinced hermeneutics are the key to understanding Dark Age Greece.

Also the title should mention it is Ussher not Usher.
