The Trojan Horse

The Horses Veiw of the War

Hi, I'm the Trojan Horse. I was a huge part in the Trojan War. The War lasted until the Greeks built me, and hid a small army in me and pretended to leave. The Trojans took me as a gift for the gods. They didn't know I wasn't empty. They had no idea that the Greeks were in me.
The Greeks made me huge, about as tall as the walls of Troy. I was about 100 feat tall! The war took place in about 1,800 B.C. The Greek poet Homer wrote about the war. In 1871, explorers thought they found the ruined city of Troy. The reason they thought this is because the ruins matched Homers description of the burned down city.
