The Frauxmmer’s or Fauxnly Planet guides might have better served the tight budget of our time-traveling grad students, but Mt. Olympus has a licensing deal with Fauxdor’s.
I don’t know why Trevor doesn’t read this yet.
A noice guide for noisy, novice time travellers? Neat for newbs!
Who can help them in Troy? Aeneas?? Odyseus?? Homer? Virgil? Heinrich Schliemann? Dr. Who? And does that book have a map of Turkey circa 1200 B.C?
Please tell me they arrive in time to see Aeneas receive the Sword of Troy!
The sword of Troy was a bull(&%)*&%^ thing made up in that gods awful Brad Pitt Troy movie! It turned Aeneas into a minor character with no background other than “Hey.. here’s a sword!”….. UGH! That movie was so fraking stupid! No-where in the original story telling is there a stupid sword that ends up being Excalibur (seriously… go see the movie The Last Legion. The Sword of Troy is renamed to the Sword of Caesar and then eventually becomes Excalibur).
Also “Troy” had no Cassandra!! A majorly important character and they totally skipped out on having her! Like WTF man?!
I occasionally have this horrible dread that historians of the distant future will only know of classical culture via contemporary popular representations of the ancient world. What if through some terrible irony all copies of Homer’s Illiad are lost, but a film reel of Troy survives?
What if this sort of thing has already happened?
Ugh.. they should destroy all evidence of any Brad Pitt movie…*thinks* Ok except for Benjamin Button….. the best Trojan war movie IMO is the 1956 Helen of Troy film. IMO they should make a film adaption of the book Firebrand. It’s completly from the POV of Cassandra.
Dierna: I know with 100% certainty that Davis was being facetious.
