The Telegram from Heinrich Schliemann to King George I

Your Majesty, it is with great pleasure that I inform you that I have discovered the tombs which, according to Pausanias' account, belong to Agamemnon, Cassandra and their comrades who were murdered by Clytaemnestra and her parmour, Aegisthus , during a feast. The tombs are enclosed within a double stone circle, something which would only have been erected in honour of exalted personages. Inside the tombs, I have discovered fabulous treasures and ancient objects of solid gold. Therse treasures alone are enough to fill a large museum whih will become the most famous in the world and will attract myriads of foreigners to Greece from every land.
