The Trojan horse
The Trojan horse
Among the stories found in these myths is that of a giant wooden horse. In the Myth of the Iliad, an army attempted to conquer the city of Troy. After ten years, when they have still been unable to break through the Trojan’s defences. In frustration, they devise a plot to get the Trojan’s to let them into their city.
The soldiers of this army build a giant wooden horse, which they fill with their best and strongest soldiers. The rest of the soldiers climb on their ships, and sail away. The Trojans think that the army has left, and take the gift horse into their city. During the night, the soldiers climb out of the horse, and finally overthrow the city.
