Life during the Trojan War – The British Museum

When you think about the Trojan War (which we know you do a lot), you probably think about the great fight between Achilles and Hektor or maybe the MASSIVE wooden horse the Greeks used to finally defeat the Trojans after 10 long years of war. However, we’re guessing what you DON’T think of is the Greek heroes Ajax and Achilles hunched over a tiny game of dice. Curator Victoria Donnellan is going to change that for you with a black figure amphora.

Discover more about the myth of the Trojan War in the BP exhibition Troy: myth and reality from 21 November 2019 – 8 March 2020. Book tickets here:
