What did we do in class on Friday, Feb. 6th?

Did the Trojan War actually take place?

This is a replica of the Trojan horse displayed at Troy.

Dear Mythology Students,

Just a few reminders for you:


1. Remember that your "desk-top" teaching assignment is due on Thursday. If you missed class on Friday (shame on you), PLEASE VISIT WITH ME on Tuesday, as your "desk-top" teaching assignment will take some time to explain.


2. Remember that you will have a quiz on Tuesday covering the introductory information that was given to you on Friday concerning The Iliad.


3. Complete the following as a review for your quiz. You know the "routine".....
a. Who was Henrick Schliemann?
b. How was Troy discovered?
c. Define the term "epic."
d. Give a synopsis of The Iliad and The Odyssey
e. What is meant by "nine cities?" Explain.
f. What is the ancient name for the Greeks?
g. What is the ancient name for Troy?

h. What is meant when we refer to "Schliemann's scar."
i. According to history, what was the cause of the Trojan War?



Do you remember this man and his significance to Troy?


Homer would have called this soldier an Achean.

These are recent pictures of what Troy looks like today.
I will see you on Tuesday!

Cheers,

Crampton
