RKMGJR Ancient Greek Phalanx Trojan War Retrieval Patroclos Body Homer Pottery National Archaeological Museum Athens Greece. From Pharsala 510-500 BC.

Struggle and confrontation make up much of human history, and some of our greatest stories revolve around warfare. Indeed, Greek mythology culminates in the Trojan War, one of the foundational tales of Western literature, with themes that continue to reverberate today. But was Troy a real place? Did the battles depicted by Homer really happen? Archaeologists now believe they have unearthed the true lost city of Troy. Discover what they have found in their excavations and learn more about the story, its symbolism, and its continuing contemporary significance.
