Uncover one of the world's greatest tales in this fantastic book for children aged 6+!

Coinciding with the hotly anticipated British Museum exhibition Troy: Myth and Reality in November 2019, this is the fascinating story of the destruction of an ancient city and the many ways it has been told and retold over time. Featuring fearsome warriors, powerful goddesses and menacing monsters, these tales have captivated children and adults for thousands of years. But are they really just tales? Where was the real Troy? And why are people still so obsessed with this legendary city? Accessible, intriguing and funny in equal measure, this is the perfect book to get children excited about Greek mythology and digging up the past.
