Schliemann’s House in Tevfikiye
Locals want to attract tourists by all means. A small village Tevfikiye is located in 600 meters from the site. You can find there what they call the Schliemann’s House. I know that Schliemann never lived there. Nevertheless tourists usually enter it (free of charge) and find there a small museum with imitation of a living room how it could look like 130 years ago…
I don’t think Schliemann was a great archaeologist. His archaeological methods were very destructive. Scientists know that he demolished many interesting structures from later eras, including all of the house walls from Troy II in his conviction that the city of Priam would be found in the earliest layers. The treasure he found in Troy and named the Priam’s treasure is probably artefact which he constructed to become famous.
So this false Schliemann’s House is symbolical in memory of false Schliemann’s treasures!
Unique Suggestions: You may watch my high resolution photo of Troy on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 39° 57' 22.13" N 26° 14' 53.85" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Schliemann’s House .
