Based on the BBC TV series. Michael Wood's combination of scholarly seriousness and contageous enthusiasm makes archaeology come alive, and it's exciting to put Homer's Iliad in its ancient setting.Was this review helpful?

Wood also delivered this in a miniseries that was quite interesting in describing a possible cause of the war as the capture of women(symbolized by Helen) for slave labor and the economic impetus of the war.Wood describes the details of life in those times and even methods and accesories and military attire for the times.Was this review helpful?
