      • Narrator: Warfare in the ancient world was a brutal affair yet there exist powerful accounts of heroic battles where opposing civilizations used cutting edge military technology to overpower enemy states. Did the ancients actually siege busting tanks and hand grenades? Did they use chemical weapons and engage in biological warfare? This is the story of the most famous siege in history, the battle for Troy.

      • Narrator: We may never know whether the legend of the Trojan Horse is myth or reality, but we have seen evidence from the ancient world that suggests warfare in the late Bronze Age used advanced cutting edge technology, much of which we no longer have the knowledge or skills to recreate.
