He is the most famous genius of our time, perhaps of all time. After his death, in a bizarre attempt to explore his remarkable gifts, his brain was removed from his body, sliced up and sent to noted scientists.
HISTORY'S LOST AND FOUND chronicles the bizarre saga of Einstein's brain. It sounds like a story from the pages of the supermarket tabloids, but it is entirely true!
Find out why and how the project was undertaken and learn where the remains of Einstein's brain are today. Then, explore the origins and fate of one of the most important documents in the nation's history: the Gettysburg Address.
Finally, meet the 19th century philosopher whose last wish was that his body be stuffed and mounted upon the family mantle! Was his bizarre request granted and why did he want this fate?
History is not all dusty tomes and dry stories, and this popular series proves that beyond a doubt!
