A legend at first, Troy began to be sought after by Heinrich Schliemann in the 1870s, based on what was told in the Iliad. The Treasures of Troy (Priam's Treasure), which was smuggled abroad from Turkey in 1873 by the German Heinrich Schliemann, who was excavating in the Ancient City of Troy, which was included in the "World Cultural Heritage List" by UNESCO in 1998, is primarily the Berlin Museum. It was taken to Russia as war booty after the Second World War. While Schliemann was digging, he destroyed many archaeological layers and reached the treasures, and it was later understood how much damage this was from an archaeological point of view. This destruction at the excavation site is today called the "Schlieman" rift. As a result of special efforts and studies, some artifacts were returned to the lands they belonged to, while other artifacts are exhibited in the Hermitage Museum and Pushkin Museum in Russia, the Pennsylvania Museum in the USA, the Schmuckmuseum Pforzeim in Germany, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the British Museum. Efforts are still being made to return the Trojan Treasures, which were smuggled from Troy, which were destroyed by illegal excavations between 1871 and 1890, to Turkey.
