The mystery of the Trojan Horse. On the trail of a legend

GER, 52′ – Language: Italian

Director: Roland May, Christian Twente – Production: Stefan Schneider / ZDF – Scientific consultancy: Boris Dunsch

The story of the Trojan horse is probably one of the most famous stories ever told. But what if the horse myth isn’t true? Groundbreaking new discoveries show that one of the most famous stories of all time may need to be rewritten. The Trojan horse was probably not a horse at all. But then how did the Greeks outwit their enemies? And what story will we find in the history books in the future?

Special Guest: Vittorio Sgarbi
