ARCHAEOLOGY AND THE ILIAD The Trojan War in Homer and History

by | Read by Eric H. Cline

History • 7 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2006

Professor Cline is an entertaining lecturer, and his topic is certainly an intriguing one. Did Troy exist and, if so, where? Did the Trojan War happen and, if so, was Homer right when he said that it lasted 10 years? Was Helen's abduction really the cause? Cline, a Bronze Age specialist, reviews the archaeological and literary evidence, and does a thorough job of presenting and evaluating several interesting streams of evidence. Hint: Homer, the famous blind bard, may have been a composite of many "homers," or story-tellers. Although a few CDs include Cline's responses to student questions, the course consists primarily of lectures, rather than question-and-answer sessions. They're absorbing lectures, though; do listen.
