A balanced,easy to read account of the life and times of one of the most famous and controversial figures of the nineteenth century,and a good starting point for a more detailed look into the discoverer of Troy, this fascinating book disappoints no one. Both pro and anti Schliemann fanatics will no doubt enjoy this well researched but rather brief story of persistance,endurance and finally reward beyond even the protagonists own expectations.The thirst for knowledge,at high personal cost,the open hostility of the Academic community,the down right contempt of desk bound sholars over the tireless explorer in the field,make success even sweeter for the adventurer who changed the very face of archaeological research. Indiana Jones was a boy scout compared to the real life thrill seeker,businessman turned intellectual that Mr Duchene,presents in his most pleasantly readable,informative and altimately educational piece of work.
