The online exhibition The Stuff of Legend: Heinrich Schliemann’s Life and Work. Celebrating the Bicentennial of His Birth commemorates the bicentennial of Schliemann’s birth (1822-2022) drawing inspiration from his vast archive
at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.

Correspondence, official documents, his published works, ephemera, and photographs highlight the depth and breadth of Schliemann’s public, professional, and private life. 

The exhibition has nine sections, anchored in the personality, life, and work achievements of the legendary figure of Heinrich Schliemann. In addition, a series of podcasts has been made to accompany the exhibition by offering a contemporary perspective through interviews with experts in the field of Schliemann studies, or readings from his archive.
