Secrets of the Dead: The Real Trojan Horse
The Trojan Horse was the ultimate sneak attack: the Greeks tricked the Trojans into defeat with a giant wooden horse that concealed enough soldiers to reduce the powerful city to rubble.

Secrets of the Dead: The Real Trojan Horse, follows a team of historians, military engineers and archaeologists as they examine the physical evidence to discover the truth behind the myth.
