In spring 1945, the Red Army entered Berlin. Not far from the Reichs Chancellery was the Berlin Zoo with an anti-aircraft tower. Inside were crates containing Heinrich Schliemann's famed collection of gold from the lost city of Troy, King Priam's riches - gold diadems with leaf and flower pendants, gold bottles, gold earrings and 9000 gold rings and buttons - one of the most complete and valuable finds ever made by an archaeologist. On June 3rd the crates were despatched to Moscow by military aircraft. And there they and their contents vanished. Caroline Moorehead has spent two years searching for the treasures of Troy. In this book she tells the full story of where they have been for the past 49 years.
