Mycenae : a narrative of researches and discoveries at Mycenae and Tiryns by Heinrich Schliemann( Book )

67 editions published between 1877 and 2015 in English and Swedish and held by 1,596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mycenaean Civilization refers to the advanced culture of mainland Greece in the Late Bronze Age (about 1550?1100 B.C.) is known today as the Mycenaean civilization. It is named after Mycenae, the first and most important of its sites to be thoroughly excavated, but the term ?Mycenaean? extends to all representative sites and their Late Bronze Age inhabitants."--http://mycenaeancivilization.com/
Troy and its remains; a narrative of researches and discoveries made on the site of Ilium, and in the Trojan Plain by Heinrich Schliemann( Book )

55 editions published between 1875 and 2016 in English and held by 1,324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Troy, with its 4,000 years of history, is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. The first excavations at the site were undertaken by the famous archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann in 1870. In scientific terms, its extensive remains are the most significant demonstration of the first contact between the civilizations of Anatolia and the Mediterranean world. Moreover, the siege of Troy by Spartan and Achaean warriors from Greece in the 13th or 12th century B.C., immortalized by Homer in the Iliad, has inspired great creative artists throughout the world ever since."--http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/849

Memoirs of Heinrich Schliemann : a documentary portrait drawn from his autobiographical writings, letters, and excavation reports by Leo Deuel( Book )

"Heinrich Schliemann (German: [ˈʃliːman]; 6 January 1822 - 26 December 1890) was a German businessman and a pioneer of field archaeology. He was an advocate of the historical reality of places mentioned in the works of Homer. Schliemann was an archaeological excavator of Hissarlik, 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 and Virgil's Aeneid reflect actual historical events."--Wikipedia
Tiryns; the prehistoric palace of the kings of Tiryns by Heinrich Schliemann( Book )

Tiryns. The prehistoric palace of the kings of Tiryns, the results of the latest excavations by Heinrich Schliemann( Book )

18 editions published between 1885 and 2010 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heinrich Schliemann (1822-1890) was a businessman and self-taught archaeologist who is best known for discovering the legendary city of Troy. Inspired by his belief in the veracity of the Homeric poems, Schliemann turned his attention to uncovering other cities mentioned in the Iliad. This volume provides an account in English of his excavations in 1884-1885 at Tiryns, a major Bronze Age city and centre of Mycenaean civilisation. These revealed a palace complex at the site, which was the most complete example of its kind until Evans' excavation of Knossos; examples of Minoan art found at Tiryns were the first demonstration of Mycenaean contact with the Minoan culture of Crete. The topography and history of the site and its artefacts are described, together with detailed discussion of the palace, and a description of Schliemann's controversial excavation methods. This volume remains an important source for the historiography of archaeology
Myth, scandal, and history : the Heinrich Schliemann controversy and a first edition of the Mycenaean diary( Book )

6 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Heinrich Schliemann (German: [li?man]; 6 January 1822? 26 December 1890) was a German businessman and a pioneer of field archaeology. He was an advocate of the historical reality of places mentioned in the works of Homer. Schliemann was an archaeological excavator of Hissarlik, 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 and Virgil's Aeneid reflect actual historical events. Schliemann's excavation of nine levels of archaeological remains with dynamite has been criticized as destructive of significant historical artifacts, including the level that is believed to be the historical Troy."--Wikipedia
Schliemann's discoveries of the ancient world by Karl Schuchardt( Book )

3 editions published between 1971 and 1979 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, which was written under Schliemann's supervision and was published shortly after his death, the dazzling accumulation of Schliemann's many findings has been systemized by Dr. Schuchhardt. He also updates them, as Schliemann uncovered so much and was a tireless worker that he sometimes did not know precisely what he had found. After a short description of Schliemann's life, Dr. Schuchhardt gives detailed accounts of Schliemann's discoveries at Troy, Tiryns, and Mycenae. The great treasures found at Troy and Mycenae are thoroughly described, as well as Schliemann's experimental method of unearthing them. All of these findings are illustrated by hundreds of illustrations, diagrams and maps. -- Book jacket (inside flap)

Trojanische alterthümer. Bericht über die ausgrabungen in Troja by Heinrich Schliemann( )

40 editions published between 1874 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heinrich Schliemann (1822-1890) was a successful businessman and self-taught archaeologist who is best known for discovering the site of the ancient city of Troy. In this 1874 work, written in the style of a diary, Schliemann describes his excavations at Hissarlik in Turkey, which revealed the remains of not just one but several substantial, superimposed ancient settlements, the earliest of which dates back to 4500 BCE. Schliemann himself was convinced that he had located Troy, and the spectacular golden treasure which he unearthed made his discovery famous around the world. Although his excavating techniques were crude, and later work on the site has led to the conclusion that the treasure dates from a much earlier settlement than Homeric Troy, Schliemann's achievement was extraordinary and his account makes compelling reading. This book was translated into English in 1875 as Troy and Its Remains, also reissued in this series

Ithaka, der Peloponnes, und Troja : archäologische Forschungen by Heinrich Schliemann( Book )

54 editions published between 1869 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Where is Troy? For Heinrich Schliemann (1822-1890) the search for its exact location became a consuming passion. In 1869, when this book was first published, the existence of a real - as opposed to mythical - Troy was still disputed. The wealthy German businessman, linguist and speculator journeyed to Greece and Asia Minor in order to undertake excavations well before archaeology developed into a modern, scientific profession. This book describes his first expedition in 1868 to Corfu, Cephalonia, the Peloponnese and Ithaca. Schliemann was convinced that the mound of Hissarlik in Turkey was the site of Troy, and the golden artifacts of his 'treasury of Priam' persuaded the public of its historicity, though his destructive methods of excavation caused extensive damage to the site. Schliemann returned to Troy several times during the course of his career and published further books (also reissued in this series) about his discoveries

The archaeology of Heinrich Schliemann : an annotated bibliographic handlist by Curtis Neil Runnels( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heinrich Schliemann has been the subject of numerous biographies since his death. Almost all of them, however, suffer from an uncritical use of Schliemann's own autobiographies and only rarely use archival sources such as diaries and letters. As a consequence, most tend to be glowing and appreciative but very uncritical. In this extended essay, Runnels offers a more critical appreciation of Schliemann's own work and later studies of it. The essay is accompanied by an annotated list of Schliemann's published works, including his influential reports on his excavations at the sites of Troy and Mycenae

Orchomenos : Bericht über meine Ausgrabungen im böotischen Orchomenos by Heinrich Schliemann( Book )

18 editions published between 1881 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the winter of 1880-1881, the wealthy German businessman and self-taught archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann (1822-1890) embarked on a new project, to excavate the 'Treasury of Minyas' at Orchomenos. He was accompanied by his wife and by the distinguished Oxford Assyriologist A. H. Sayce. This book, published in 1881, begins with a vivid description of the journey from Athens to Orchomenos, through gorges and swamps, and across mountain passes. Schliemann mentions earlier attempts to excavate the 'treasury' (actually a Mycenaean beehive tomb), the difficulty of the terrain, and how he engaged over 100 local people to assist in the removal of earth and stones from a large area. He lists pottery, artefacts and stone implements, and gives detailed measurements of walls, towers and gates. The book includes drawings of sculpted decorations including rosettes and spirals, and the texts of classical Greek inscriptions found at Orchomenos and at nearby Copae
