Book Description
Heinrich Schliemann created his own myth: the poor uneducated boy who became a millionaire, taught himself Greek, and then - guided only by the poems of Homer - spent his fortune on excavating the sites of Troy and Mycenae. To the amazement of the world, he unearthed such marvels as the Mask of Agamemnon and the dazzling Treasure of Priam.
