Summary

A German businessman-turned-archaeologist, Heinrich Schliemann (1822-1890) had a lifelong dream: to find the world of Homer--the mythical cities of Troy, Ithaca, and Mycenae--and search for its long-hidden riches. Now, this fascinating volume reveals the complete story of how this passionate amateur, guided only by the Homeric texts, unearthed legendary sites and artifacts.
