The relentlessly self-promoting amateur archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann took full credit for discovering Homer's Troy over one hundred years ago, and since then generations hBut Schliemann gained this status as an archaeological hero partly by deliberately eclipsing the man who had launched his career. Now, at long last, Susan Heuck Allen puts the record straight in this fascinating archaeological adventure that restores the British expatriate Frank Calvert to his rightful plHisarlÃk, the site now thought to be Troy as described in the Iliad.

"Allen sets into print the story of Frank Calvert, the man really responsible for the discovery of Hisarlik and its identification with ancient Troy. . . . This book presents both new and little-known material and is fascinating in its treatment of Calvert and Schliemann."â€”Eric Cline, Xavier University"In an informative and carefully documented study, Allen has restored an unjustly neglected pioneer of field archaeology to his rightful place in the discipline. She has also cast much revealing light on the most famous and controversial of modern archaeologists, Heinrich Schliemann."â€”William M.
