1877

Description:

C.19th engraving of Dr. Schliemann’s Excavations in the Acropolis of Mycenae. Schliemann was a German businessman and pioneer in the field of archaeology. He was an advocate of the historicity of places mentioned in the works of Homer and an archaeological excavator of Hisarlik, now presumed to be the site of Troy, along with the Mycenaean sites Mycenae and Tiryns. His work lent weight to the idea that Homer’s Iliad reflects historical events.
