“TOURING THE WORLD’S GREATEST ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES”
PART 2
The European classical scholars of the 19th century were firmly convinced that the Trojan War had not taken place and was completely invented by the Greek poet Homer. Let’s find out what Heinrich Schliemann found to put this myth to rest. Excavations still go on today. Secondly, we will move on to Mesopotamia---to discover and to investigate the “Cradle of Civilization”: Ur, Niniveh, Nimrud, Babylon, and Lachish, now Israel, a hot bed for Biblical Archaeology as well as political unrest. Archaeologist Dr. Eric Cline conducts our journey.
