The Lost Leonardos
The recent announcement of the existence of 700 drawings of mechanical inventions by Leonardo Da Vinci has caused a furore among scholars. Charles Gibbs-Smith, of the Victoria and Albert Museum, examines this important discovery and the new light which this sheds on Leonardo's missing years.

The Gate of Hell
In ancient legend Lake Avernus on the Bay of Naples was the site of the entrance to Hades. Could it have been the rather sinister complex of tunnels which Dr. Robert Paget has found nearby?

Introduced by Magnus Magnusson.
