Troy: Of Gods and Warriors
Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey describe an epic story of the legendary Trojan war fought over the most beautiful woman in the world Helen of Troy. It is said her face launched a thousand ships. But, did this ten year war actually take place? Was Achilles a true warrior? Did Greek soldiers really hide in a giant wooden horse and overrun the Trojans to finally declare victory? Setting out across the Aegean Sea with Homer’s works as his guide, Josh Bernstein follows a trail of clues – up mountains, under the sea and aboard a chariot – to find the real story behind the Trojan War. And, he uncovers new research by explorer Robert Bittlestone, who believes he has unearthed proof of Odysseus’ kingdom in Greece!
