Homer’s Iliad was written around 750-700 BCE (about a war between the Greeks and the Trojans which probably took place in 1250 BCE). Since then, according to the author, for the next 5000 years, 94 out of every 100 years in the following centuries have seen large scale conflicts in one or more parts of the world. Reason enough to carefully examine the events which occupy only the last few months of that 10 year war because The Iliad’s evocation of war’s devastation, then is as resonant today – perhaps especially today – as it was in Homer’s Dark Age.
