Traill (Classics/Univ. of Calif., Davis) is no hagiographer as he builds a persuasive case that Heinrich Schliemann, the revered 19th-century German who excavated Troy in one of the greatest archaeological finds of all time, was a fraud in both his personal and his professional life, including in the record he left of his achievement.
