Synopsis by Cecilia Cygnar
Part of the In Search Of series, this documentary looks at the secrets behind the lost city of Troy. Narrated by series host Leonard Nimoy, this video uses dramatizations and interviews with scientists and historians to re-create the travels and expeditions of the man who rediscovered the ancient city of Troy, Heinrich Schliemann. The extinct city was said to be lost from the time of the Trojan War, fought between Greece and Troy in ancient times. Troy has been the subject of many speculations, scientific expeditions, and even stories, including Virgil's Aeneid, about the fall of Troy. This video also features interviews with archaeologists who have visited the ruins; they talk about their experiences and the condition of this ancient city.
