This week, we talk about a Holocaust escape tunnel rediscovered, we hear about the Buddha’s skull, rediscovered also, we see how medieval knights could dance and capper around in full armour, and we look at some important letters from founding father Thomas Jefferson. Also, we look at an oral history project recounting the story of women on Route 66, we commemorate the Battle of the Somme 100 years later, and we remember one of the Tuskegee Airmen.
