Book Description

America’s first archaeological adventures on Ottoman soil mixed good intentions with ineptitude and chicanery. The wrong man was rewarded for groundbreaking discoveries. The exhibition uncovers the tangled relationships, bitter rivalries, the cultural clashes – and the crucial role of the artist Osman Hamdi Bey.
