One obvious sign of Schliemann’s growing fascination with Hellenic culture was his remarriage to a young Greek woman—the sharp-tongued, independent-minded Sophia Engastromenos (shown here and on this issue’s cover). The marriage produced two children, Agamemnon and Andromache. It also marked the start of Schliemann’s new life as an archaeologist. Schliemann’s archaeological career spanned more than 20 years. In the 1880’s, he oversaw important digs at the Mycenaean cities of Tiryns and Orchomenos. He also returned repeatedly to his beloved Troy, excavating there five times between 1873 and 1890. He was planning another campaign at Troy when he died unexpectedly in Naples, from complications related to ear surgery.
