The German archaeologist, Heinrich Schliemann is perhaps one of the luckiest archaeologists in history. His discovery of the Mask of Agamemnon was not his first, but second remarkable discovery. Having already discovered the real location of the legendary Troy, Schliemann’s next project was to discover the final resting place of Agamemnon, the king of Mycenae who led the Greek forces during the Trojan War. Though there is debate if Schliemann ever reached his second goal, he certainly made another impressive find in the process - the 'Mask of Agamemnon.'

Schliemann is probably best known for his identification of Troy at Hissarlik, and the unearthing of the ‘Treasure of Priam’. Less well-known, may be his subsequent excavation in Mycenae, Greece. However, it was here that he made another stunning discovery, a golden death mask. https://www.ancient-origins.net/art...tioning-mycenaean-death-mask-agamemnon-003435
