Storyboard Text

  • Ransom for Hector
  • The Luck of Troy
  • Warrior Women
  • "They bade her tell him that now he should go to Achilles and offer the proper ransom for his son's body, telling him also that if he did so, Achilles would listen to him."
  • The Death of Achilles
  • "Troy was a sacred image, a black stone shaped like Athene's shield, which had fallen from heaven long ago. The Palladium, men called it; but they also called it the Luck of Troy, and believed that while it was there, the grey-eyed goddess would help them to keep all enemies out of the city. So they guarded it day and night, and took strength and comfort from knowing that it was there."
  • Poisoned Arrow
  • "The Amazons were a tribe of women warriors who lived far away, in the lands watered by the river Thermodon. In battle they were the equals of the strongest men, and some said that they were daughters of Ares, the god of war."
  • Black Ships Before Troy Hannah Morrill
  • "He staggered onward, striking blindly until his strength failed him and he came to a gasping halt, leaning on his spear. He gave a great hoarse shout, "Dogs of Troy! Dying though I am, you shall not escape my spears!" But with the words scarce out, he fell toward the gateway, his armor clashing about him."
  • "When he saw Odysseus and Diomedes coming, he seized his bow and fitted an arrow, dipped in his own poison, to the string."
