Heinrich Schliemann (1822-1890) was a German businessman and archaeologist who is best known for his work excavating the ancient city of Troy in modern-day Turkey. He was interested in the ancient world from a young age and taught himself several languages. In 1868, he retired from business and devoted himself to archaeology, beginning excavations at the site of Hisarlik, where he believed the city of Troy was located. His work quickly captured the attention of the world, and his excavations at Troy uncovered several layers of ancient cities. Heinrich Schliemann ‘s work has been criticized for his methods and lack of scientific rigor, but his contributions to the field of archaeology are significant.
