[edit] Information

The epic poet Homer wrote of the great walled city of Troy, immortalizing its destruction in the Trojan War. But by the 19th century, most people thought of the tale as fiction. Except for one man, Heinrich Schliemann, a German industrialist who followed the clues in Homer and uncovered the ruins of the great ancient cities of Troy and Mycenae, complete with fabulous treasures. A generation later, an Englishman named Arthur Evans pushed back the frontiers of European history even farther, with his spectacular discovery of the ancient palace of Knossos on the island of Crete. In a controversial move, Evans reconstructed parts of the palace, blending his own theories of the people he called the "Minoans" with the archaeological record.
