"Thanks for Virginius I this week Troy Myth and reality at the British Museum stories of the Trojan War I hope by homer and continue to fascinate people today. Nearly three thousand years later as well as looking at the ways that the Trojan cycle of myths have been told over Millennia. The British Museum show follows in the footsteps of the archaeologists who aim to prove the reality of ancient troy. Oy A quest that finally came to fruition in the nineteenth century Leslie bitten is the Exhibitions Co curator and she joins me now leslie. I wonder if we might begin by asking asking you to give us a brief rundown of the story of the Trojan Wars. It's a long story and in the exhibition. We have what hard to you just. Hit the main edited highlights essentially. It starts with the quarrel of three goddesses. Over a Golden Apple as marked mocked for the fairest. And here Athena and Aphrodite all wanted Zeus has more sense than to alienate two of the three by making the judgment himself so he gives that Paris the Prince of troy the goddesses all offer bribes and Aphrodite of his Paris. The love of the most beautiful woman women in the world. He finds that it was a staple gives apple to Aphrodite. Then he has to go to sparser to retrieve the most beautiful woman who is Helen Helen then of Spartan of Choi because she's married to King of Sparta Peres held away and molasses outranged arranged not. Surprisingly he goes to his brother Agamemnon. The high king of all the Greeks. I'm persuaded him to set off with a huge force to take troy. Oy and to retrieve Helen. It's the famous thousand ships. They get to troy they then fight for ten really better years. It's not an easy city to take it strongly fortified the Trojans are also great warriors eventually. Of course the Greeks do due win because of the trick of the wooden horse. The famous wooden horse that has worries hidden inside it. It's brought by the Trojans into that city the warriors John Out opened the gates. The Greeks Poor Ed. That's the end of Troy and the destruction of a great city now the exhibition and when you think troy at the push museum wants immediate instinct is perhaps to think that this is going to be a show of ancient objects but it's absolutely not that is what it is. It's absolutely not that and in fact the very first thing that the visitor sees as they walk in is a huge canvas by site twenty painted in nineteen sixty two and we were very keen to talk about this great story. One of the world's greatest stories in terms not only just of the ways that the Greeks enrollments told it but the ways. It's been responded to since then right through every the era every generation almost up to the present day and so our art the objects in the show go from well the the earliest around two thousand five hundred BC but they end with absolutely contemporary watts of one thousand nine hundred so we should be so you as you say this tourney but there's also anthony cars in a way to most contemporary objects in the whole exhibition. Are the ones that greet you as you. I Will Kim absolutely they do. But we've also pretend to that space to really interesting Parts from Troy from Schliemann's excavations the date from the third millennium BC. But we chose them because their blackened and unburned and they went blackened in troy itself but in Berlin at the end of World War Two the allied bombing of the city but in the museum. Am Stool where they were kept. We wanted to put those in for two reasons one was to say straightaway to the visitor. The Troy is both the place of imagination and also a real place and the other reason was to underline how the Trojan war has become an archetype for ooh oodles. That story has been adopted. Adapted responded to in the context of more recent conflicts to that the. Let's get to the archaeology L.. Kyoji now because of course for very very for Millennia they there have been people trying to find out whether the Trojan war actually happened. And and we still don't know do we. But we do know that troy existed as a real place. Yes we do. And that's a really interesting story in itself. The ancient Greeks had no doubt that homer was telling having a story that had really happened was history not recorded history but it was something that had happened in their own. Early passed 'em but but then what happened was that they also thought that Choi had been completely destroyed because the story said so but they didn't die that the the alien of their own time. The Greek a`moment town was the site of ancient troy. They went there was a place of pilgrimage. They wanted to pay their respects. The heroes of the story story. It was only after the end of antiquity that Ilian the Greek and Roman city but also of course old troy at lost a not new they were and then really remarkably in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries it became much of the most heated debate weather troy had existed whether the Trojan more taken place and people like the poet Byron visited the plane of Troy. He saw the Chew Muli. You know the mountains in the plane which are a burial Ariel mounds and he was convinced that this was the site of the Trojan more homer he was great home defender. homer could not possibly have got this wrong wrong others those said you're being completely romantically ridiculous. This story is a product of homeless poetic imagination. It is a waste of time to look for ancient troy anyway. What happens eventually as the birth of archaeology as a discipline? An in the very early days of archaeology a local resident in their charter. An Englishman called Frank Calvert does some excavations and in the region and he. He gets an inkling that he has actually found the ancient site of Troy. But he doesn't have one thing that's really important for large scale excavations which is money. And that's where Heinrich Schliemann comes in their self made German businessmen mid life if you like his forty eight when he gets to troy. He has resources to do a large scale excavation. So Calvin shows his small-scale wok and Schliemann instantly instantly is on it in eighteen. Seventy he starts digging troy. He finds the early levels of the site. He doesn't totally find the Trojan war or he likes to claim that he has he claims to the world that he's found the troy of Priam and of the war imminently. He's not totally click convinced that he's really getting the site right. And we now know that his troy the Trojan more is about a thousand years too early for any sort of feasible background for the clash as described by homer right so so in a way that. There's this little nicer technique thing that Schliemann's troy is actually sort of a myth in its. I'm way I'd Schliemann was great myth maker about himself. He liked to tell his own story in a really romantic way of the poor boy made good the young Kboi with the dream of finding troy later and slightly more cynical critics of said. It wasn't exactly like that. So yes there was a lot of mythology Iran Schliemann layman an an and durant his discoveries and they really hit the headlines at the time there was a lot of discussion about what he had really found and so the archaeology comes up to date because there is this tantalizing detail which is sort of spelled out in the show. which is that? There is some some evidence that there was contact in the period. Which took you which might indicate that there was grounds for an actual job? Trojan wars. At right yeah I think that's coming coming increasingly into focus actually sort of recently over. Maybe the last twenty or thirty years It's still doesn't amount amount to saying anything more than a feasible background here but we apologists understand better now. The late Bronze Age eastern Mediterranean they understand the AH growth and increasing parent influence of my seaney. Obviously for a Trojan war to happen agamemnon. My senior has to be strong. Influential title powerful. They understand that troy itself is indeed written a well fortified city in the late. Bronze Age has huge walls and and defensive tires but more interesting much smaller scale than huge rules. There were scraps of written evidence from the hittite empire of you've sort of central Anatolia. That start to kristen is our picture of where early troy fitted in the ancient world. It seemed to fit is at the very western extremity of the hittite empire the records as fairly scanty and spas but they do show that troy at some periods was vassal state of the hittite empire loyal to the Great King of that empire but sometimes James it broke away and they're sort of faultlines on the extreme western edge of of the hittite demane and does evidence also and this is so intriguing. It's so tantalizing really. There's evidence that the hittites are in contact with people who they call a hero. Roy and that's the Akins a A homer his height geography has got clearer. We know that troy was called will looser. That's Ilias of Homa We know that the hittites and the worry the Greeks. Sometimes were loggerheads sometimes clashed. We know that Troy was somehow now in the middle of that we still can't completely prove the existence of the Trojan war. So there's no remnant of a wooden horse any no that's what you need to fight so let's talk about the the retelling of the myth through the centuries and Millennia. Indeed than one of the things I think really one defeat them in the show is we uses Richard Rodgers as exhibition space. I think the best. I've seen it in many ways in this vast open space isn't it and it allows you to have sort sort of a narratives sort of overlapping all the way through the show until something about yes. Well thank you thank you for the compliment. I think the design of this show. is is really wonderfully achieved and it's always hard when you see designs on paper on a computer screen to know how habit space but when we do it all built and installed. We were really thrilled with the way that sense of narrative that sense of flow for the visitor. Had We hoped come across. So it's great to hear that you thought so. I think the way the stories changed over. Time is another really interesting thing with some unexpected twists and turns really so one of the reasons. The story is is an archetype. The war the conflict is an archetype is because I is I believe because in homeless Hans it's very even-handed each side has heroes. Each side has US floors. You're not naturally invited to be pro Greek or pro Trojan that changes with classical Greek Greece where the trojans become the other Komo combination as slightly strange slightly for slightly the enemy but then what happens later as we go into the medieval period. Ed Is that knowledge of ancient Greek and therefore of Homa dies away in the West so the so western Europe inheritances inherits his tradition through Latin accounts. Now of course in this is one of the few trojans to survive and he leaves the banning city of Troy with his father and son and he goes off to found a new city. He's the founder of Rome so in this S. becomes in the Christian world model of Christian partier dutiful family man and you this extraordinary phenomenon in the medieval wild in in western Europe that everybody wants to be a Trojan an so Trojan heroes are invented even if they don't exist in the ancient story to be the founders of say Britain itself brute or brutus founds Britain and indeed defines London Troy No van or new troy and so the medieval wild was strongly pro Trojan. It's only really with the renaissance that you'd Greeks come back into the pitcher. I suppose really. From then onwards people sort of sympathize. Most with the Greeks don't they I don't really know. Maybe it's only because the Greeks win. Anyway the crease come back into the picture. Then you get the period when people thinking very romantically about heroism and how wonderful it is to be a warrior hero on the battlefield with the twentieth century senator that changes again to disasters world wars apart. Raphael's bring about new cynicism a sense of criticism of military action. I am military leaders so again responses to toy change and then we also talk a bit about contemporary responses and what it means to people in the multiple causes story is still maddest. People I think and you have a very direct way of showing that with an anti photograph which is actually a direct response to a rubens image edge. So you can. You can actually showed how overtime the image is being. The story is being re imagined for new time absolutely. That's a really good example of a very direct link of the way and sort of icons of the way of showing it is passed on. We also have some really interesting judgment Richmond Paris scenes which are common in the ancient world on the Greek pottery is. I'm sure you saw. But there are some fabulous more recent imaginings actioning William Blake Lucas Cranach. The elder chronic extraordinary is operatives fabulous painting..

Ourselves through the lens of men, and that's particularly straight man but I find that it's. Often women policing other women criticizing other women it's not always just meant of course and the reason why is because you know. Women are under a system that forces us to judge each have then it, means that we continue to repeat that. Because it's And not. Policing includes calling a woman out for being fat rather than actually just allowing her, to exist on her own terms because you don't see that same criticism.

Both of those words fat and psyche. Our objectives those objectives have been given a, different meaning which is negative so the word fat is frowned upon, because we're taught that to be fat means that you essentially A bad person and that is shown in how we treat fat. People and so people have a fear of being fat. Because it's associated with being about passing now the word sake is seen as negative because it's associated with aging and, women aren't allowed to age, and the process of aging is something that women are scorned.

"At the very end of when I was working there, or maybe even started after the second in command for security under Lyle was a guy named Chuck when I was there. And and I seem to remember that you know, Chuck quit because he was he wanted to work for the railroad or something like that. And then they got a new guy in that might have been Larry. But I don't know. And I know that some people say that the person on that security camera footage of the night before the robbery looks like looks like him. But I wouldn't be able to say for sure because I don't remember it as far as the job goes you had said that. It was specifically one hard and fast rule that you don't let anybody incorrect. Yeah. I mean, we had a lot of rules. But that was was definitely one. That was very clear like don't let anyone into the building unless they work. There. Did anybody give you any instructions on if you saw police officers asking to be buzzed in? No, we were never given a plan for for that. And this is just an opinion question if you had been in that situation, and you saw what was quite possibly police officers two of them outside without a police car around. And they wanted to come in. Would you have hit the the the alarm that goes directly to the police department that was at the security desk? Just as a precaution. Yeah. That I mean, that's really hard to say. I, you know, of course, I would like to think that the that. I. Would not have let them in. But. Yeah. That's that's really hard to say. So you stopped working at the museum in nineteen eighty seven and the highest of course, happened in nineteen ninety. So you weren't interviewed by the Boston police or the FBI or anything right now. I was interviewed by the FBI. You were. Yeah. Oh, wow. Yeah. They. I was living in New York at the time moved out of Boston EDA. And they found me through my father. So I like to joke that my dad read me out to the feds. But they them detective damn sows zone called me. And then the I talked to him for a while on the phone and then two agents came down and interviewed me in person. What was that? Like, though, it's a really interesting. I mean, it was kind of funny to like the first thing is like a. I was working for mural, Dan company, and in lower Manhattan, and they came to where it was working. And for some reason it was surprising to me. But they look exactly like FBI agents that you see on TV, you know, with a trench coats and mirrored sunglasses and crew cuts and skinny black ties and whatnot. And then of course, they do the whole thing where they flip open there. There. No, no pad their their FBI identification. Okay. I'm the. Yeah. So that was kind of funny, and then they wanted to interview me in their car, but I live so just a couple of blocks away from where I was working. So it's okay. Why don't we just go to where I live because I lived in kind of a, you know, a run down a loft space on canal street, which was you know, these are this is a long time ago. So it was before was gentrified kind of. I I thought that if I brought these guys to where I live and they'll see that obviously. Even if I was involved with the robbery at all I didn't make any money off that because it was living in the dump. So we we got there and sat down, and they asked me questions for pro probably a little over an hour, or so, and and that was strange to me too. Because the they ask questions exactly the way. You would see it on TV. There was one of the guys was really friendly and nice and chatty and the other guy just glared at me with this. You know, elbows on his knees and didn't say anything, and they you know, they asked one guy asks me. All kinds of questions and every once in a while he was with throwing a question that was sort of like a curve ball. I dunno to see how I would react. They were all questions relating to to the heist. And had you heard you had you heard about the highest before before you were contacted by shore. Yeah, I was I I was actually in Italy when the robbery haven't. So I have an alibi likely story. Jeff. And no, I I heard about it. And I was shocked, and so and I had been keeping up a lot with whatever developments. There were about its way new quite a bit about it by the time that I spoke to the FBI, but mo- most of their questions were about security at the museum and different people that work there, and you know, things like that. And then, you know, they asked me a couple of questions like did I ever think about how I might go about stealing something from there? And that was the only time that I well, I don't want to get myself in trouble by saying they lied to be I because it seems like that. Something that gets people troubles these days. But I said that I that I had because I had thought about stealing something because that was part of my job. But actually, in fact, I don't think that I ever had considered. Ceiling anything from there. What are the what are the bad cop in that? Good cop, bad, cop, situation, didn't change his expression. Once he's like, we could he mad dog. Yeah. That that's what Lance does to all. Our interview subjects. I'm usually asking the probing questions. He's just mad dog and people you should see how I'm staring at the phone right now. And it's a good technique. Are you aware of the FBI interviewing any of your other co workers or any anyone else like any other nightwatchman from that time or guard from that time? Well, I I assume that they tracked me down it must of been asking the most have been looking into everybody that works there. But I haven't talked. I haven't spoken to anyone. You know? I lost track of all the people that I knew there, and I I never heard any other stories about anybody being interviewed. But I imagine most people were could you glean anything from their their line of questioning like, obviously, you you're not guilty. What were they asking about specific people like more than once or anything like that? I can't think of anything. I don't I imagine that. There wasn't anything that really stuck out to me at the time or else they would have remembered that. But I can't say that there was that they had any give me any hints about what direction they were going with with investigation. Just seemed to me like they were asking a lot of questions about of security system in different people that worked museum, and yeah, you know, like gathering information and sort of evaluating how I was answering their questions. I mean, you seem to have a pretty decent memory about the, you know, that timeframe when you work there, and your story has a pretty amusing anecdote about a an incident that happened involving a candelabra, I believe do you mind elaborating a bit on that story. Yeah. Sure. One thing that I like to do when I was making rounds was looking at artwork with the flashlight carry this, really large. Flashlights? But about a foot. Half long which was our only weapon, according to Lyle, and it was a, you know, pretty powerful flashlight, and and if you look at a certain oil paintings with the flashlight you could see through different layers of the glazed down to the under painting. I really like doing this because as a young painter, I could learn a lot about how some of these painters had made their paintings the night of the story. I was up in the gothic room, which is on the third floor, and in in there was one of my favorite paintings. But it's a adamant eve by Lucas Cranach's. So I was stepping back from the painting to get the whole thing within the beam of the flashlight, and I felt like a something hard jab in between my shoulder blades. And immediately knew what it was. And there was this medieval candelabra about. Five feet tall. Made of cast iron. I could feel it after I hit it. It could feel that I knocked off balance, and then I could feel because it's totally dark. I couldn't see it. I could feel like this kind of vacuum opened up behind me. And then the the candelabra tipped over completely and and hit the floor with a really loud. Sound you know, really loud crash like a gun and right after that, my walkie-talkie started squawking because the woman that it was working with at night was calling because she heard the crash, and she's you know, freaked out. What does that what was that sound? And you know, I didn't know what to say. So I said, oh, I think it's coming from the second floor. I'll go down and check it. So I I ran down to the second floor. Of course, nothing's going on down there. Then when I went back to the desk, I played dumb, and she was kind of superstitious sort in fact when I worked with her she she was too nervous to do the rounds in the museum. So I would do all of her rounds and my around and she would just sit at the desk the whole night. So I kind of led her her let her think that maybe something supernatural happen and the. And I'm the my my next round. I I checked out the candelabra, and I put it back up and one thing had been the one of the I'm not sure what you would call one of the things that held one of the candles was bent in was able to bend it back in place. But everything else was fine except some of the tiles in the floor been shipped. So the next night. I brought some crazy glue. And I lose the tiles back together. And you can still see it today. It was at the museum few years ago with some friends, and I was telling the story and as proof I sound where the crack tiles were. So anyone who's listening, and you haven't found a reason to go to the Isabela Stewart Gardner museum where you just aren't going to lay one more reason on you, and that is to head up to the gothic room and the candelabra and some repaired, but still semi cracked tiles from your days. As as a nightwatchman. There's
