The Truth of Troy

Today on Discovery Enterprise we present a Horizon documentary that explores the truth behind the legendary Trojan War and the abduction of the woman that precipitated this legendary conflict.

The legend of Helen of Troy has enchanted audiences for the last three thousand years. Now, modern day archaeology has given us the tools to shed light on this legendary tale of heroes and damsels in distress.

Since 1988 Professor Manfred Korfmann has been excavating the site of Troy. He has never before spoken at this length. He has made amazing discoveries – how large the city was, how well it was defended and, crucially, that there was once a great battle there at precisely the time that experts believe the Trojan war occurred.
