Schliemann and Gladstone
First transmitted in 1974, Magnus Magnusson and Sir Mortimer Wheeler discuss the changing attitudes to archaeology which have taken place in Wheeler's lifetime.
He talks about the disagreement in 1877 between Heinrich Schliemann, the excavator of Troy, and the statesman William Gladstone over the question of nudity in Ancient Greece.
