LONDON

The British Museum is getting ready to open its doors for a special exhibition of antique findings from the ancient city of Troy.

‘Troy: Myth and Reality’ will feature around 300 artifacts in a special gallery from Nov. 21 to tell the city’s story.

Pots, silver containers, bronze weaponry, statues, and sarcophagi are among the items that will be displayed, most of which are on loan from the Berlin Museum, Britain’s Ashmolean Museum and the Danish National Museum.

Most of the artifacts were smuggled out from Turkey by German archaeologist and businessman Heinrich Schliemann in the 19th century.
