Biographies & Memoirs / Biography / Schliemann of Troy: Treasure and Deceit by Traill, David Traill, David Penguin  1996, first edition: decorative card cover approximately 5 x 7.75 inches tall: 365 pages including index: centrefold of black and white photographic illustrations. Synopsis:  By uncovering what he claimed to be Homer's Troy and Mycenae, Heinrich Schliemann (1822-90) became one of the dominant personalities of his age. Yet this biography shows him to have lived an entire life of fraud. Rumours and claims that he fabricated evidence, or bought, buried and found artefacts, are fully evaluated as the author reassesses Schliemann's life, travels and shady dealings. The book is an assessment of one of the great archaeological stories of all time and a study of a man apparently driven to shroud his own life in fantasy.
