Title: AGE OF THE HEROS (DVD FORMAT)
Movie ID: VT2071
Movie Number: 2071
Description: Some 3000 years ago, according to Homer's "Iliad," the "most beautiful woman in the world" was kidnapped, setting off a 10-year war that would end only when a hollow wooden horse filled with Greed soldiers was hauled inside the gates of the city on Troy. Fact or fiction? That's the subject of this compelling six-part probe. Wearing the hats of historian, archaeologist, detective and storyteller, British journalist Michael Wood journeys to supposed Trojan War sites in Greece and Turkey and delves into the complex literary and historical records in an effort to separate the myths from the facts. In part 1, Wood recounts the story of one of the first "who searched before," an enigmatic German named Heinrich Schliemann (1822-90). Known to many as " the father of archaeology," Schliemann was the first to unearth what were believed to be ruins or Troy, in the 1870's. later

"One of my favorite things about LSSU is its size. The classrooms, especially as you get to the upper levels, get smaller, so you not only have a chance to discuss your ideas in an honest, supportive manner, but you also get to know your professors and classmates. The upper level courses really allow you to focus on what you love, and the small class size allows you to have time to share and to discuss your ideas."
