Art History: Heinrich Schliemann and "Priam's Treasure"

Schliemann was a pioneer in the field of archaeology and excavated some of the most important sites in the Western world, including Mycenae in Greece and (what he believed to be) ancient Troy in Turkey in the late 19th century. Interestingly, many of Schliemann’s methods and conclusions are the focus of controversy and debate by modern scholars, so we will discuss his fascinating legacy in the worlds of art, archeology and history.

Explore Antarctica

oin Gene Gilliom for a cruise to a destination unlike anywhere else in the world– Antarctica. A trip to Antarctica is one of the world’s most unique an intriguing travel experiences. Wind speeds can top 198 mph and its temperatures in winter can plunge to as low as -128 degrees F. The continent’s average precipitation is comparable to that of the driest deserts.
Antarctica is a spectacular wilderness of landscapes featuring colorful ice, rugged rock formations, waterways teeming with sea life, and wildlife still unafraid of humans. Some say Antarctica is a wilderness of the mind, and traveling there is like visiting no other place. To be seen: countless penguins, a variety of seals, whales, and a surprising array of birds. In addition to spending 10 days in Antarctica on the Clipper Adventurer, the itinerary will take us to Santiago in Chile, the Falkland Islands, and Ushaia and Buenos Aires in Argentina.
