Heinrich Schliemann is a controversial figure. Yes, he helped prove that the Odyssey and Iliad were based on fact, but he also destroyed thousands of years of the archaeological record of Troy by digging through its ruins. This book is a nice Junior level biography, showing both the good and the bad about the man. A must for any Grade 4 to 6 student studying Troy.
