Dec 22 16
This week, we start with some follow-up about the destruction of Nimrud, we’re happy to learn some Christian texts were hidden from ISIS, but this group re-enters Palmyra, and Old Aleppo is retaken but destroyed. We hear of the reason why the Franklin Expedition was so unlucky they all died, we discover a 2500 year old Greek city, we take a look at the ugly mug of Robert the Bruce of Scotland, and we dig up some old bones in Bordeaux. Also, La Trinité, the shipwreck that changed American history, there will be a new face on the 10$ Canadian bill, and the Dutch return several artefacts back to Ukraine and Italy.
