As a child I loved picture books of Greece and Troy showing the civilisation that emerged thanks to Schliemann. His dedication to his childhood dream of proving that Homer was not pure invention, that Troy was a real place and his industry in uncovering the Mycenaean civilisation seemed exemplary.

What David Traill's book makes clear is that this was no accident. Schliemann had refashioned himself and attempted to manage his media presence. If he was an exemplar it was of a real life Mr Bounderby
Robert Clancy
So far, Schliemann was driven, very smart but greedy, unscrupulous, a liar and cheat, too.
