"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.

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 )

54 editions published between 1875 and 2016 in English and held by 1,237 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

"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."--Wikipedia

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 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
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 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schliemann's discoveries of the ancient world by Karl Schuchardt( Book )

3 editions published between 1971 and 1979 in English and held by 423 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)

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

63 editions published between 1869 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 273 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

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this second part of The Schliemann Diaries we follow Heinrich Schliemann (the famous 19th century archaeologist, trader and traveller) through his diary on his second journey: his travels to America from December 1850 to March 1853. The original diary was written in English and for a small part in Spanish. This publication is a transcription and translation of Schliemann's travel diary. In 1850 the millionaire Schliemann decided to end his job as trader in Russia and to try his luck in the United States. He travelled via Europe to New York and Washington and then via Panama on to the goldfields in California. He made a second fortune in Sacramento with buying gold dust and with banking. After two years he returned to Europe and got married in St Petersburg. In this diary Schliemann describes his travels from the perspective of a wealthy business man in the mid-19th century and writes about the landscape, his visits to the theatre, the hotels he used, his much discussed meeting with the American president, his lucrative banking business in California, etc. His travels and accommodation weren't always without danger. Schliemann describes in detail the extreme heat and humidity, fatal illnesses, rainstorms, floods, mosquitoes, robbers, murderers and swindlers
