Troy: Myth and Reality

British Museum, Bloomsbury until March 8, 2020


This exhibition is grand, sweeping, ambitious and profound. Take a deep breath and set aside an afternoon because it's so worth it. The Trojan myth has lasted for millennia. Trojan Prince Paris promises Greek Queen Helen, the goddess Aphrodite. He takes her from her husband and drags her across the Aegean to become his wife. The Greeks are not happy and brutally surround Troy for ten years, eventually sneaking into town by equestrian means and putting the place in the trash. In all its violence, jealousy and aggression, Troy has become the most enduring of legends. This is just one of the lessons we will surely learn in this exciting exhibition, which will be full of art, objects and beautiful things from ancient Greece.
