Finding the Walls of Troy : Frank Calvert and Heinrich Schliemann at Hisarlik

By Allen, Susan Heuck

Berkeley CA: University of California Press, 1998. The relentlessly self-promoting amateur archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann took full credit for discovering Homer's Troy over one hundred years ago, and since then generations have thrilled to the tale of his ambitions and achievements. But Schliemann gained this status as an archaeological hero partly by deliberately eclipsing the man who had launched his career. Now, at long last, Susan Heuck Allen puts the record straight in this fascinating archaeological adventure that restores the British expatriate Frank Calvert to his rightful place in the story of the identification and excavation of Hisarl’k, the site now thought to be Troy as described in the Iliad. Frank Calvert had lived in the Troad--in the northwest corner of Asia Minor--excavating there for fifteen years before Schliemann arrived and learning the local topography well.. 1st Pbk Ed.. Softcover. New.

The Fall of Troy

By Ackroyd, Peter

London: Chatto & Windus, 2006. "I cannot wait to bring you to the plain of Troy. To show you the place where Hector and Achilles fought. To show you the palace of Priam. And the walls where the Trojan women watched their warriors in battle with the invader. It will stir your blood, Sophia. " Sophia Chrysanthis is in her twenties when the celebrated German archaeologist Herr Obermann seeks her out; comes wooing: he wants a Greek bride who knows her Homer. Sophia passes his test, and soon she is tying canvas sacking to her legs, so that she can kneel on the hard ground in the trench, removing the earth methodically, identifying salient points, lifting out amphorae and bronze vessels without damaging them. "Archaeology is not a science, " Obermann says. "It is an art. " Obermann is very good at the art of archaeology-perhaps too good.... Obsessive and intuitive, he is a romantic visionary". 1st UK Edition. Hard Cover. New/New.
