The Odyssey is one of the greatest stories ever told - and one of the first great pieces of literature.

After the Trojan War, Ulysses traveled back to his homeland.

But what route did he take? And was the journey possible?

In 1985, Tim Severin set out to find out.

Once again making use of the Argo from 'The Jason Voyage' Severin followed the route of Ulysses' voyage home in The Odyssey, from Troy to Ithaca in the Ionian islands.

Along the way, Severin made tentative or conclusive identifications of The land of the Lotus-eaters, King Nestor's palace, the Halls of Hades, the Roving Rocks, and the Sirens Scylla and Charybdis.

The Ulysses Voyage, tells the thrilling story of the expedition, the historical research that went into it, and the discoveries Severin and his crew made along the way.

It will have an irresistible appeal to scholars as well as lovers of adventure, travel and mystery.
