  1. The Trojan Horse By: Christine Kotch, Emily Ferrol, and Alyssa Sipos

  2. The Trojan Horse • The Trojan horse is a huge, hollow, wooden horse. • Was created in Ancient Greece. • Odysseus was the mastermind behind it and helped make it. • Was used to help win the war against the Trojans. • More than 30 people hid inside it. • When the Trojans saw it they thought it was a gift or peace offering to end the war so they put it in the middle of their town of Troy. • The Greeks came out at night to defeat the Trojans using a rope to slide down.

  3. The Trojan War • The Trojan War started because of one lady named Helen. • People believe that she was abducted. • For her return to her husband and daughter a large fleet of ships was sent over to Troy. • The Trojan war went on for ten years. • Some people thought it would never end. • The Trojan war was one of the most important events in Greek history. • Historians believe that the war took place in the 12th or 13th century. • They also believe that Troy is located in present day Turkey, but it got destroyed in about 1230b.c. or 1180b.c. • Egyptian text books talk about the Trojan war too. • The Egyptian text books say the war had 22 cities though.

  4. Story of the Trojan Horse • The Greeks pretended to flee the war • Someone was “left behind” • Sinon (person who was left behind), said the Trojan Horse was an offering to Athena or for good luck • People hid in the horse (no one is sure about how many people). • Trojans had to knock down a wall to get the Trojan Horse into their city of Troy • Later at night when the Greeks hid in the horse, they came out at night and attacked the Trojans • The Greeks basically won the war with the Trojan Horse because they tricked the Trojans • They finally won the war
