Exclusive to the British Museum, a tea towel featuring imagery inspired by the Trojan War.

This 100% cotton tea towel is machine washable, and will make a striking addition to any kitchen.

The design is based on traditional red-figure and black-figure scenes found on ancient Greek vases, plates and other pottery. The illustrations represent key moments from the infamous 10-year Trojan War, including the judgement of Paris, the hero Achilles slaying the Amazonian Queen Penthesilea, Hector’s body being dragged around the walls of Troy, and the sirens plaguing Odysseus’ long journey home. The images are bordered by Greek-inspired patterns and motifs.

The story of the Trojan War is one of the best-known stories from classical mythology. The epic story tells of how the ancient Greek army won the seemingly endless siege by tricking the Trojans with the notorious wooden horse.

An incredible home gift inspired by ancient Greece.
