At a Glance

The myths of Homer tell of a lost era of kings, heroes, and adventurers in which the armies of Greece, led by King Agamemnon of Mycenae, marched against Troy. By the 19th century it was generally believed that these stories were purely mythical, but the eccentric and controversial amateur archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann was determined to prove that there was real history behind the stories. The archaeological site of Mycenae and the stunning discoveries he found there have provided us with a glimpse of the world described by Homer. Through the archaeological remains and artifacts unearthed by Schliemann we will meet the Mycenaeans and explore his question of how much real history made it into the Homeric myths.
