Schliemann pens, in full, “There are many deep abyss that by the fate of the deepest of them is in our heart and it is very tempting to jump into it.”
Heinrich Schliemann (1822-1890) was a German businessman and classical archaeologist, an advocate of the historical reality of places mentioned in the works of Homer, and an important excavator of the Mycenaean sites of Troy, Mycenae, and Tiryns. Although he was untrained in archaeological techniques and was more of a "treasure-hunter" than a scientist, his enthusiasm and determination led him to many significant finds.
