In 5500 BC, and for thousands of years, there were local farmers and ranchers who worked on the land and tended their flocks on the east side of Lemnos. They built a village by the sea, on a magical bay, overlooking the exact point of where the sun rises. On the opposite coast, a thousand years later, the legendary city of Troy would be built.
ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The soldiers in those forces quickly became known as Anzacs, and the pride they took in that name endures to this day. When war broke out in 1914 (WWI) Australia had been a federal commonwealth for only 13 years.
