Summary:
Christies, New York, 1998: in a blaze of publicity, an extraordinary item was put up for sale. To the untrained eye, it was nothing more than a small and unassuming Byzantine prayer book, yet it sold for over $2 million. Its real value lay not in the prayers but in a much earlier, spidery script that lay hidden almost invisibly beneath them. This turned out to be the oldest and most authentic copy of a compendium of works by the ancient Greek scholar Archimedes. Lost for over a thousand years, scientists are now using cutting-edge imaging techniques to unlock the secrets to this time capsule, and gain a unique insight into one of the greatest minds the world has ever known.

Special DVD features include: activities for educators; materials and activities for librarians; a link to the Infinite Secrets Web site; closed captions; and video descriptions.
