Set during the Trojan War, the ten-year siege of the city of Troy (Ilium) by a coalition of Greek states, it tells... More > of the battles and events during the weeks of a quarrel between King Agamemnon and the warrior Achilles. Although the story covers only a few weeks in the final year of the war, the Iliad mentions or alludes to many of the Greek legends about the siege; the earlier events, such as the gathering of warriors for the siege, the cause of the war, and related concerns tend to appear near the beginning. Then the epic narrative takes up events prophesied for the future, such as Achilles' looming death and the sack of Troy, prefigured and alluded to more and more vividly, so that when it reaches an end, the poem has told a more or less complete tale of the Trojan War.< Less

"What were they doing here? Why had they come? Four years before Raleigh had backed a project to set up the first English colony in the New World. 108 men and women had arrived on Roanoke island...

When, two years later Henry had walked into the remains of the settlement they had built it was like stepping on dead men’s bones. There was a feeling of evil, of extreme discomfort. His father stood at the head of what was then 118 men, women and children but after his father-in-law John White had returned to England to get more supplies it was to Henry the soldier that they all looked for protection. Had he acquitted himself well? Henry didn’t know. In those early days it seemed as if there would never be any need to fight, but that was then."
