Episode Summary

Fall of Troy
With the evidence amassed on the search, can we now link the archaeological, the historical, and the literary evidence together to discover what may have happened? If Troy was not destroyed by the Greeks, then who destroyed it? And who in turn burned many of the Greek palaces within decades of the Trojan War? Tablets found in the archives of those Greek palaces seem to speak of desperate and hasty defence plans, a state of emergency with home guard units quickly dispatched before the palaces fell. But is it Egypt that offers us some clues, with Egyptian accounts speaking of a terrible attack by some seaborne raiders the Sea Peoples who had swept up from the Aegean and overturned even the mighty Hittite Empire.moreless
