Summary

Immortalized in Homer's epic works The Iliad and The Odyssey, the legendary city of Troy was the stage on which devastating battles were fought and heroic deeds were done during Troy's conflict with the Greeks. Homer's 8th-century bce works, which were often sung, kept the Trojan-Greek War alive in the minds of millions of people. However, the stories suddenly came to life in 1871, when an amateur archaeologist announced he had found the gold that belonged to Priam and the city that had been destroyed by the Greeks. Plenty of other archaeological finds have been made, and Homer's epic poems have been translated from the Greek time and again. In Troy, discover this ancient city as it existed in ancient times and the ways it has been commemorated through word, song, and popular culture.
