In Search for the Trojan War, begins with "The Age of the Heroes," in which Michael Woods follows the footsteps of early archeologist, Heinrich Schliemann, who searched from 1870 to his death in 1890 for evidence of the historic city. Filmed in Greece, Turkey and Europe, the heroes from Homer's "Iliad" come alive as Schliemann's quest uncovers what he believed to be Priam's Treasure at Hisarlik, Agamemnon's burial mask at Mycenae, and Mycenaean murals and pottery at Tiryns. Schliemann's treasure trove of presumed evidence of the Trojan War was destroyed when WWII bombs burned the Berlin Museums. Modern archeologists continue the search with the help of science as the series continues.
