Mystery Files

You're familiar with their names and many of their stories, but there's more to most historical figures than what's in the basic textbooks. ``Mystery Files'' has modern historians, scientists and scholars investigate ancient artifacts, documents and locations in search of answers to age-old questions about history. Episodes look for proof that explorer Marco Polo existed, an explanation for how Joan of Arc overcame hardships to become a legendary saint, details about Abraham Lincoln's dark past, and an end to the debate about English soldier T.E. Lawrence, the inspiration for the film ``Lawrence of Arabia.''
