The recent discovery of Tenea, an ancient Greek city believed built by survivors of the Trojan War, continues the public's fascination with the epic tales of Homer, a trend started by Heinrich Schliemann, the passionate archaeologist who found Troy.
HEINRICH SCHLIEMANN, THE German archaeologist, was in Turkey in the late 19th century on an eccentric quest. He was excavating a tell—an arti cial mound that covers long abandoned settlements. The site, known as Hisarlik, was familiar to only a few specialists. But as Schliemann dug, he was pinning his hopes on nding the ruins of the most famous city in classical literature: Troy.
