The story of the Trojan Horse is well-known. First mentioned in the Odyssey, it describes how Greek soldiers were able to take the city of Troy after a fruitless 10-year siege by hiding in a giant horse supposedly left as an offering to the goddess Athena. But did such a contraption really exist?
In this special lecture Patrick Finglass, University of Bristol, examines evidence from ancient art, archaeology, and literature for its possible existence and design.
