1320: Section 4: Schliemann and Troy | Crete. Mycenae & Homer | Scoop.it

While digs at ancient sites have in general revealed much important information about what-really-happened-in-the-past, archaeology is still a mixture of science and art, with a hefty helping of media relations thrown in.

Flashy treasure-hunts make for good press but all too often bad history, yet in some ways that's what modern Mediterranean archaeology grew out of: the dreams of a wealthy German merchant named Heinrich Schliemann who went searching for the Troy of Homeric legend and found a new world of recovered history.
