Homer's Troy: Myth -AND- Reality

“The True Story of Troy” (2007) aired again this past week on the History Channel:

Here is the way to write a review!

My take: The Iliad is a primer on how the ancients viewed Myth. The Iliad created a legend suitable for adoption by commoners and at the same time preserved real history for the privileged!

Unfortunately the History Channel does not have any other scheduled airings of this program.
