For my specialist subject in final year of Classics, I chose Homeric
Studies. Nearly all the other kids of that year chose the same; all
except one girl who chose St Augustine's writings.
We read the Iliad and Odyssey, looked at theories of who Homer was, how
the Trojan War figured in classical Greek view of true history. I
remember also reading a book by a sailor who traced Odysseus' voyage
around the Med.
I guess that counts as a fair equivalent of "Trojan War".
