Heinrich Schliemann's Selbstbiographie

The autobiography of Heinrich Schliemann

ISBN: 978-3-902096-41-8; Paperback, 116 pages, 24 black-and-white pictures
Price: EUR 9.90

Heinrich Schliemann is very famous for the discovery of Troy, Mycenae and Tiryns. He is a celebrated but also controversial personality of the 19th century. In particular he has been attacked for his digging methods; on the part of archaeology he is accused of having destroyed much more than preserved. Actually, it is a matter of fact that these sensational archaeological discoveries are due to his unshakable belief in the words of Homer, to his readiness to assume a risk and above all to his strong will. The autobiography had been completed after his death by his Greek wife Sophie.
In this book many pictures have been added to the original text. On the one hand there are drawings which had been made by Schliemann himself, on the other there are pictures of some outstanding finds from Troy, Mycenae and Tiryns.

Gerhard Pöllauer: Geheimnisvolles Lemnos. Die von Frauen beherrschte Insel

Mysterious Lemnos. Island dominated by women

ISBN: 978-3-902096-77-7; Paperback, 128 pages, 97 black-and-white pictures, 3 color photos, 1 map
Price: EUR 13.00

The rather unknown North Aegean island Lemnos amazes with its great prehistoric past. About 5000 years ago there existed a highly-developed civilization which created imposing cities, mighty rock buildings and impressive sanctuaries on this Greek island. The discovery of Poliochni was sensational. Because of its largeness and refinement this Bronze Age settlement is regarded as the most ancient city of Europe. Also the discoveries at Myrina in the west and Hephaistia in the north witness the island's prehistoric importance. Presumably there was a further city in the Northeast - Chryse, which was sunken under the sea.
Moreover, the findings make evident that in this ancient civilization there was gender equality, it even seems that the women had the predominating gender role. Not without reason in antiquity Lemnos was described with the words »island dominated by women«.
