One of the best HD programs offered!!
29 March 2005 | by mking-16See all my reviews

I can't get enough of this show. What a concept; not only is it very entertaining but the sheer importance in what they are accomplishing is enormous. I find the four hosts to be engaging each in their own exuberant way. This team diligently researches the background of a plethora of old artifacts brought to their attention by us the viewers. Thats right, people like you and me that are sitting on strange, old objects, documents or land-sites even homes. Their histories are dissected by this team in order to reveal it's true history. A must see, I am a fan as long as the series runs which I hope is a very long time. Thank You PBS, the watchers and the detectives, thank you, thank you.
