The first Ottoman attempts to collect and to preserve the antiquities began after the proclamation of the Tanzimat in 1839. Thanks to the westernization and the modernization of the Empire, the Ottoman statemen became aware of the importance of the antiquities which were sought after by the western governments for their new museums. From 1840 then on, the presence of large number of western adventurers and smugglers who were after the antiquities necessitated new regulations and legislations to protect the cultural heritage of the Empire. The new regulations and laws concerning the antiquities and founding new museums were surely intended to show that the reformed empire was part of the modern European world. Thanks to the Homeric epics, Troia and its rich remains attracted visitors throughout history. Greeks, Romans, Europeans, and some Ottomans, notably Mehmed the Conqueror visited the city and were interested in its rich history. After its rediscovery by the flamboyant German amateur archaeologist Schliemann, Ottoman authorities endeavored to protect the site as well as its archaeological treasures. Schliemann’s smuggling of the Trojan treasures and tireless efforts the Ottoman authorities to bring them back to Turkey are one of the most interesting chapters in the history of archaeology.
