The first 200 words of this essay...
When Heinrich Schliemann emerged from Turkey in June of 1873 with a sizeable treasure, the whole world took note. He claimed not only to have found the treasure of King Priam, King of the ancient city of Troy in Homer's epic, but more importantly he claimed to have discovered the actual ruins of what he believed to be the infamous and lost city of Troy. Within days Schliemann was famous all over the world, and throughout the course of his life, and after more than fifty years of archeological research, he was adorned with the title "father of modern-day archeology." Schliemann's timely findings may lead many to believe that he was indeed one of the luckiest men in history, but others have delved into the life of Schliemann as both a man and an archeologist, and after learning about what may seem like minor faux pas and irrelevant mistakes, they have come to conclude that although he was a successful scientist, Schliemann was a liar, a thief, and a fraud in both his personal life and in his career as an archeologist.
