The BP exhibition: Troy: myth and reality

21 November 2019 – 8 March 2020

The archaeology of Troy continues to fascinate, not least because it holds out the hope of discovering the historical truth behind the ancient myth. But perhaps a more compelling truth can be found in the story itself, which is still told and reinvented after millennia. This exceptional exhibition offers a unique opportunity to explore the specifications of the National Curriculum in Art and Design, PSHE and History through themes that continue to speak to people across cultures and across time.
