Trojanisches PferdAnkershagen lies between the county town of Waren and the village of Penzlin, 6 km. south-east of the B 192 road and 8 km. west of B 193 on the northernmost approach to the MŁritz National Park.
This Mecklenburg town was home to the world famous archaeologist and discoverer of Troy,
Heinrich Schliemann (1822-1890), who spent the first eight years of his life there. The Heinrich Schliemann Museum was set up in 1980 in Schliemannís parentsí house, a half timbered example dating from the mid - 18th. century. Visitors to the monument can learn about the life and scientific work of the archaeologist. Among the exhibits are some 40 original pieces found at Troy - pottery and bronze- and illustrations of the gold pieces from Troy and Mycenae.
Blick in die Ausstellung There are also photos, documents and other exhibits, from Schliemannís childhood and youth in Mecklenburg and his family and friends. Across the churchyard there is an interesting stone church dating from the 13th. century, in which Schliemannís father served for nine years. His mother was buried in the churchyard. Visitors to Ankershagen and its surroundings can still see traces of Schliemannís childhood haunts. Over the years the land around the Schliemann Museum has been turned into an idyllic gem.
