Next Episode of In Search of the Trojan War is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
In 'In Search of the Trojan War' (released on DVD on 10.05.04) historian Michael Wood delves deep into the origins of archaeology, and examining the evidence from sites in Greece, Turkey, and – perhaps surprisingly– in Berlin.
Homer wrote his epic, The Iliad, in 700 BC – 500 years after the Trojan Wars were supposed to have taken place. On what did he base his story? Where was Troy situated? Did Paris and Helen really exist? What was the significance of the famous wooden horse? Can archaeology help us to recreate a Bronze Age citadel which stood at the cross roads of the major trading routes of the day?
The trail is not easy to follow and Michael hits various dead ends and dramatic twists before he finds an answer to the question which has obsessed scholars for more than a century. This six part series was first shown on BBC Two in 1985 and won the Silver Plaque Award at the Chicago International Film Festival.
