Heinrich Schliemann is best known for discovering the 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. 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.
All illustrations, maps, plans, ground plans included.
Perfect condition. Ex library. Bares library’s stamp on a few text pages and on almost all the icon’s pages. Rather in perfect condition.
