In Part 2 of the BBC series "In Search for the Trojan War," historian Michael Woods introduces three new archaeologists who join Heinrich Schliemann in the search for Troy: German architect Wilhelm D©œrpfeld who uncovered the walls of Troy partially destroyed by Schliemann's excavations at Hisarlik; Sir Arthur John Evans who declared the Minoan Theory of Bronze Age dominance after excavating Knossos; and American Carl Blegen who found Mycenaean tablets of Linear-B writing at Pylos that disproved the Minoan Theory and vindicated Homer's story of Mycenaean dominance in the age of Troy. As these archaeologists excavate sites mentioned in Homer's "Iliad," their conflicting interpretations reveal their mindset of each, influenced by modern world events.
