Overview


THIS IS THE STORY OF THE MIGHTY CITY OF TROY THAT GAVE BIRTH TO ONE OF THE GREATEST LEGENDS EVER TOLD. BUT THERE IS MORE TO TROY THAN MERE MYTH...

Troy draws upon the works of Homer and Virgil to tell the legend of the battle for the city in compelling detail. It is a story of golden heroes, duplicitous gods, mighty warriors and a wooden horse, and its cast includes the great characters of Achilles and Hector, and the most beautiful woman in the world, Helen of Sparta. Troy intertwines the myth and reality of the legend, examining the discovery of what may have been the actual ruins of Troy in Turkey by archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann. The result is a captivating and complete account of a city that continues to fascinate the world.
