Schliemann describes step by step the excavation of Mycenae in These are in the form of long letters describing the work he has undertaken and the various articles they have uncovered. A working knowledge of the Greek classics, ancient Greek and occasionally Latin is helpful, but not absolutely necessary. The book itself can become tedious/5. Famous from ancient Greek literature as King Agamemnon's capital, Mycenae was the site of almost unbroken excavation during the 20th century, and this continues today. In presenting a full up-to-date account of the site and placing it in its geographical and historical setting, the author concentrates on the great buildings of the citadel—the Lion Gate, the Cult Centre, and the Palace.
