9/11/08 although schelmann destroyed a lot, he left a lot of opinions that has been hard to get away from. Carl blegen then came, the American. 1932-1938. He is more careful than the germans, reflecting the advances of archeology. He used smaller numbers of people working more slowly and recording a lot better. He went in knowing a lot about what he would find. He didn’t randomly pick a spot. He agreed with dorpfield about there being 9 layers of stratigraphy, but also divided those into 46 sections where there was a destruction. He gave each one a letter. His major problem was that he set out to find troy, he based it on a conclusion, something you aren’t supposed to do. He went out to find something. If you go looking for something, you’re going to find it, changing whatever you find into your evidence, even if it isn’t. He also kept more things like pottery. He said that Troy VII A was the real troy, and published a very extended volume. He says that the last layer of Troy VI was destroyed by an earthquake.
