Heinrich Schliemann. Ilios : The City and Country of the Trojans
Heinrich Schliemann (1822-1890) was a remarkable man. Born in Northern Germany, his family's financial situation made a university education impossible. Schliemann's business career took him all over the world, during which he mastered several languages. The years 1851-1852 found him in Sacramento, where he ran a bank on Front and J Streets. His success in his business ventures allowed him to retire in 1858 to pursue his main interest, archaeology. In his memoirs, he claims he wanted to dedicate himself to the pursuit of Troy. This book is a recording of the results of an excavation at "Hissarlik", now considered to be the site of Ancient Troy. $500.00
