Reading a history of the excavations at Troy as a boy led to my majoring in Atgnhropology undergrad.
Thought for sure I would unearth an ancient city some day...oh well...

they realised that both pre and post-war objects contained clay from exactly the same local sources, suggesting the same people were making the pots. Why would they conclude that if the same source of clay was used that it was the same people (tribe) using the clay source to make pottery?

The Romans believed they were descendants of the Trojans who escaped the destruction of Troy. Under Aeneas they traveled to Rome and were the seeds of the Roman Empire.
Does anyone know if there was even a shred of evidence to support that idea?

Seems thin to me, with minimal evidence.
Why shouldn't the new population use the exact same sources of clay? It's not like THEY were forced out, and the workings should be easy to spot.
Great leaps of logic with small propulsion from facts is the hallmark of all the social sciences, although I do love archaelogy and anthropology
