81. TROY STORY

Smith & Williamson Tent, Sat 29th June 10:00 - 11:00 (60 mins)

Star of BBC Radio 4, Natalie Haynes will bring her unique combination of ancient history and stand-up comedy to the story of the Trojan War. The women whose lives the war affected largely remained in the shadows, from the Amazon warrior, Penthesilea, to the priestess who foresaw the war, Cassandra. These women will be returned to their rightful place: the middle of the story.
