Summary:
We examine the armor of Henry VIII to discover how he got so fat and crazy, then enter New York high-society to reveal how a nude sculpture led to a brutal murder. Inside a vast Egyptian temple, enclosed within the museum's walls, we search a secret chamber to discover why the temple's statues celebrate the foreign emperor who conquered the land of the Pharaohs. We touch the Holy Grail (or maybe not) to discover what gives religious relics their power, then discover how a museum curator invented modern body armor. And finally, in a lab equipped with the latest NASA technology, we discoverhow museum scientists use art to solve mysteries of the past and present.
