The Legend Under Siege

In Part 2 of the BBC series "In Search for the Trojan War," historian Michael Woods introduces three new archaeologists who join Heinrich Schliemann in the search for Troy: German architect Wilhelm Dörpfeld who uncovered the walls of Troy partially destroyed by Schliemann's excavations at Hisarlik; Sir Arthur John Evans who declared the Minoan Theory of Bronze Age dominance after excavating Knossos; and American Carl Blegen who found Mycenaean tablets of Linear-B writing at Pylos that disproved the Minoan Theory and vindicated Homer's story of Mycenaean dominance in the age of Troy. As these archaeologists excavate sites mentioned in Homer's "Iliad," their conflicting interpretations reveal their mindset of each, influenced by modern world events.

The Women of Troy

Homer wrote his epic, "The Iliad," 500 years after the Trojan Wars were supposed to have taken place. On what did he base his story? Did the Trojan War ever happen? Where was Troy situated? Did Paris and Helen really exist? Join historian Michael Wood as he combs the cradle of civilization from Greece to Turkey and Western Europe in search of archaeological evidence that may validate the fantastic battles immortalized in Homer's legend. Over six hour-long programs, Wood presents a portrait of the historical and legendary city of Troy, its central place in Western culture, and the Mycenaean Age itself. In "The Women of Troy," Wood looks at the reality behind Helen and Mycenae's wealth and offers an explanation of the Wooden Horse.
