 From Troy to Mycenae: In Search of Homer’s Heroes  

 Lecturer – Louise Schofield

The Trojan War: Myth or History?  Louise will look at the story of the Trojan War and at some of the extraordinary ancient works of art it inspired. She will take us in the footsteps of Heinrich Schliemann who discovered the lost city of Troy and within it a fabulous golden treasure.

Palaces, Tombs and Treasures of the Mycenaean Greeks:  Following his incredible finds at Troy, Schliemann searched for the tombs of King Agamemnon and his followers.  His excavations at Mycenae in 1876 began the discovery of a lost civilisation of the late Bronze Age, that of the Mycenaean Greeks.  Louise will explore their world of beautifully decorated palaces, and shrines and their rich burials, laden with gold.
