Natalie Haynes
Troy Story

Star of the BBC Radio 4 series Natalie Haynes Stands Up for the Classics, Natalie brings her unique combination of ancient history and stand-up comedy to take you on a tour around the Trojan War, the setting for her latest novel A Thousand Ships. The stories of the women affected by the war have largely been untold, but Natalie takes women like warrior Penthesilea and priestess Cassandra out of the shadows and places them where they belong: at the heart of the story.
