English term or phrase: ... turned on its head
The myth was **turned on its head** when German archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann discovered the real city of Troy – which had in fact been burned down c.1220BC. It is now accepted that the Trojan War did really happen, although it was more likely fought over trade routes than love.
