Summary
The Greek poet Homer tells the story of the Greeks and the Trojans in a battle for the city of Troy in his poem, the Iliad. Homer's story has been told and retold for centuries, but until the middle of the nineteenth century, the site of Troy remained a mystery. In the 1870s, Heinrich Schliemann, a self-taught archaeologist fascinated with tales of ancient Greek heroes, set out on his own search for the lost city. Schliemann began his excavations at Hissarlik in Turkey. He had no training as an archaeologist, but he was wealthy and determined. the terrain at Hissarlik seemed to be very similar to Homer's descriptions in the Iliad. When his workers unearthed ancient walls and he uncovered fabulous golden treasure, Schliemann was sure he had found Troy. But had he?
