Kaitlyn –

Your post did a good job listing the damages done by Sir Evans and Schliemann. I agree that they went beyond pure ‘observation’ and they were definitely trying to accomplish some sort of cultural / personal prestige garnering with their ‘restorative work’. Still, I feel like at they time Europe was heavily into imperialism and were not giving much respect to other culture in general, so the fact that these people were making efforts to preserve the past and present it to others is a ‘good’ thing, despite the damage they may have done.
