In Search of the Trojan War: Greek Art and Archaeology
Typical episode length : 56 minutes Number of episodes to date : 8 Brief plot description : During a diplomatic visit, the Trojan Prince Alexander and Spartan Queen Helen fall in love and abscond to Troy. Like Schliemann, he gets more speculative and dogmatic as the data become sparser.

Wood does not insist on the historiche is as romantic and as plausible as Schliemann and Blegen ever were. Achilles sacrificed 12 noble Trojan captives over the funeral pyre of his friend Patroclus, not of Hector.
