An Age of Heroes: Tracing the Sea Peoples Through Ancient Mythology

You are invited on a journey to our distant past.

A time of myth. An age of heroes. When demigods battled monsters of legend. But how much of it was legend?

Author and researcher Petros Koutoupis joins AO Premium for his premiere Talk to an Expert Chat, and will look at ancient mythology, and ancient truths.

More specifically, were Homer’s Odyssey and Virgil’s Aeneid inspired by true events? Is there a historical record of such adventurous seafaring occurring from the time of the end of the Trojan War? What do we know about the authors of these epics and the rest of the Trojan Cycle and how have the stories evolved with each telling?

What hidden wisdom is preserved in these narratives?

Petros Koutoupis is an author and an independent historical researcher, focusing predominantly on the Late Bronze and Early Iron Age periods of the Eastern Mediterranean and general Near East. Fluent in modern Greek, Petros has additional knowledge in languages that include ancient and Biblical Greek, Biblical Hebrew, and a good fundamental understanding of Aramaic, Ugaritic, Phoenician, and Akkadian. He has always relied on the original sources for interpreting some of our most misunderstood historical and mythological texts.
