A historical investigation on the Trojan War relying on both literary and archaeological evidence from a well-renown historian of ancient Greece.

3300 years ago Agamemnon, king of Mycenae in Greece, attacked the city of Troy in western Anatolia. The bloody siege that followed gave rise to one of the most famous legends of the ancient world, and the search for the truth behind the legend has intrigued scholars ever since. In this fascinating new investigation Rodney Castleden reconsiders all the evidence in order to establish the facts and give a historical basis to the most potent myth of ancient warfare.

About The Author

Rodney Castleden is an author and historian.


“…Castleden’s revisionist account of the story of Troy remains a most insightful treatment of the seemingly mythic events that make up part of the foundation of Western history. The Attack on Troy is an excellent book for anyone interested in the story of Troy, ancient literature, or war in the Bronze Age.”
