TroyBe enchanted by the epic legend of the city of Troy, the place which inspired Greek myths about a horse full of hidden soldiers, Homer's Iliad and stories of Troilus and Cressida as the British Museum opens the gates to the ancient city. Through beautifully painted classical Greek vases and and later Bronze Age discoveries, the exhibition wades in on a debate on the history of Troy that is still ongoing today. It shows how the remarkable archaeological evidence from excavations in the 1870s persuaded the world that Troy had existed and was not just a myth. The extensive exhibition also looks to literature to reveal how Troy's story has been reworked and retold in the literary world, through the works of Virgil, Chaucer and Shakespeare.

 

About British Museum

If you wanted to thoroughly explore the British Museum, it would take months, if not years. Over seven millions objects from all over the world are housed in this impressive museum of human history and culture (many of the artefacts are stored underneath the museum due to lack of space).
