A new bronze bust on the grounds of the Heinrich Schliemann Museum in Ankershagen (Mecklenburg Lake District) commemorates the well-known archaeologist. The Heinrich Schliemann Society announced on Sunday that the memorial stands for the awakening of the rich merchant and successful archaeologist from Mecklenburg at that time. The memorial stands between the parsonage and the barn on the property where Heinrich Schliemann (1822-1890) grew up as a child of a pastor's family. The museum is the only museum facility for the internationally renowned archaeologist in Germany and recognized by the federal government as an authentic "Blue Book Museum".
Schliemann was born on January 6, 1822 in Neubukow near Rostock, grew up in Ankershagen and went to school in Neustrelitz, among other places. He became a successful businessman, lived among other things in Russia, Holland and later in Greece. Under the motto "Schliemann's Worlds", a show in Berlin also recalls his multifaceted work.
