Trailer: The Worlds of Schliemann. His Life. His Discoveries. His Legacy


The Museum für Vor- und Frühgeschichte is holding a major special exhibition at the James-Simon-Galerie and the Neues Museum on Germany’s most famous archaeologist, Heinrich Schliemann (1822–1890), to commemorate the bicentenary of his birth. With around 700 objects – including many international loans – in addition to spectacular excavation finds, this exhibition will focus on a side to Schliemann that has never been revealed before, and take a look at who he was before he turned to archaeology. It will also critically examine the archaeological methods of his time, drawing on current research findings.
