One passion, two loves : the story of Heinrich and Sophia Schliemann, discoverers of Troy by Lynn Poole( Book )
25 editions published between 1966 and 1969 in 4 languages and held by 908 libraries worldwide
"Heinrich Schliemann (German: [li?man]; 6 January 1822 ? 26 December 1890) was a German businessman and a pioneer of field archaeology. He was an advocate of the historical reality of places mentioned in the works of Homer. Schliemann was an archaeological excavator of Hissarlik, now presumed to be the site of Troy, along with the Mycenaean sites Mycenae and Tiryns. His work lent weight to the idea that Homer's Iliad and Virgil's Aeneid reflect actual historical events....Schliemann needed an assistant who was knowledgeable in matters pertaining to Greek culture. As he had divorced Ekaterina in 1869, he advertised for a wife in a newspaper in Athens. A friend, the Archbishop of Athens, suggested a relative of his, seventeen-year-old Sophia Engastromenos (1852?1932). Schliemann, age 47, married her in October 1869, despite the 30 year difference in age."--Wikipedia
