Examining Wolfgang Petersen's 'Troy' from archaeological, literary, cultural, and cinematic perspectives, this book addresses the important aspects of the film: its use of Homer's 'Iliad' and the myth of the Trojan War, its presentation of Bronze-Age archaeology, its modern political overtones, and its place in film history.
