From the palaces of Homeric epic to the ancestral seat of Roman emperors, Troy in antiquity was a place couched in myth. But for nearly four millennia, Troy was also a living city, inhabited by real people. In this fascinating talk, Dr Naoíse Mac Sweeney reveals the complex story of the legendary wars and their legacy. She will argue that far from being irrelevant in the 21st century, Greco-Roman antiquity is regularly invoked in political discourse.
