In Search of Troy

One Man's Quest for Homer's Fabled City


This is the story of one man's determined quest to find Homer's fabled city of Troy. In 1873, Heinrich Schliemann discovered the legendary city of Troy. He unearthed temples, palaces, and great stores of treasure, as well as the homes of ordinary people, and discovered much that matched Homer's descriptions. This book chronicles one man's quest and its success. It recreates the everyday life of the Trojan people, and adds color and depth to a reding of Homer's Iliad.
