Hide Profile

Born in Germany, Schliemann lived in several European countries and made his fortune working in international commerce and the export business. Schliemann had no formal training in archaeology, but is best remembered for his excavations of Troy. In 1852 he married a Russian woman, Catherina Lishin, who later refused to leave St. Petersburg or to allow their three children to leave, to travel with Schliemann on business or archaeological pursuits. In 1869 he decided to divorce his wife, and moved to Indianapolis to take advantage of Indiana's lax divorce laws.
