The war is one of the most important events in Greek mythology and has been narrated through many works of Greek literature , most notably Homer 's Iliad. Other parts of the war are described in a cycle of epic poems , which have survived through fragments. Episodes from the war provided material for Greek tragedy and other works of Greek literature, and for Roman poets including Virgil and Ovid. The ancient Greeks believed that Troy was located near the Dardanelles and that the Trojan War was a historical event of the 13th or 12th century BC, but by the midth century AD, both the war and the city were widely seen as non-historical. In , however, the German archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann met Frank Calvert , who convinced Schliemann that Troy was a real city at what is now Hisarlik in Turkey. Whether there is any historical reality behind the Trojan War remains an open question. Many scholars believe that there is a historical core to the tale, though this may simply mean that the Homeric stories are a fusion of various tales of sieges and expeditions by Mycenaean Greeks during the Bronze Age.
The Tale of Troy
Total running time: With their best warrior dead, the Greeks realise they cannot take Troy by force alone. Odysseus, famed for his cunning, devises a plan to capture the city. He orders a large wooden horse to be built. This is left outside the city walls as an offering to the goddess Athene. The Greeks then sail away out of sight. The Trojans think the Greeks have sailed back to Greece and rejoice in their victory.

Tales of Troy and Greece
No story was more interesting to Shakespeare and his contemporaries than that of Troy, partly because the story of Troy was in a sense the story of England, since the Trojan prince Aeneas was supposedly the ancestor of the Tudors. This book explores the wide range of allusions to Greece and Troy in plays by Shakespeare and his contemporaries, looking not only at plays actually set in Greece or Troy but also those which draw on characters and motifs from Greek mythology and the Trojan War.
