Trojan Tales

Legacy of Troy

Everybody knows USC as the Trojans. In Greek mythology, the Trojans came from the ancient city of Troy, a city that in legend was besieged for ten years before being conquered by the Greek army. That ten year battle is known as the Trojan War. Historians are still debating whether the mythical city of Troy is the same as the real ancient city in Turkey. In this episode, Jonathan Kubiak digs deeper into the story behind a supposedly Trojan relic hidden in plain sight on the university park campus.
