A riveting, epic look at one of the most celebrated cities--and events--of the ancient world. The true story behind the film starring Brad Pitt and Orlando Bloom. Trace Odysseus' journey and visit the ongoing excavations of the fabled city.
According to legend, the Trojan War began with a beauty contest. 10 years and one wooden horse later the conflict finally ended, leaving in its bloody aftermath one of the greatest stories--if not mysteries--ever told. TROY captures the entire history and mythology behind this ancient city and sends you into the battlefields where gods and heroes decide the fate of civilizations. With exquisite footage and fascinating, in-depth interviews, The History Channel brings the ancient world alive as never before.
