The Revealer Clue #1: A common find reveals an uncommon history

This picture holds tiny clues to the truth about a technological feat from ancient times, which may have been wrongly attributed to an invading army.

This week's installment of "The Revealer" will change what you know about history. But can you guess where and when this story takes place?

Leave your answer here in our comments section.  We’ll announce the name of the first person to figure it out, when we debut this all-new installment of "The Revealer" Thursday on BackStory.

      Congrats on flineeg settled! I, too, am dreaming of the day when I get to look at all of my books at one time, instead of having half of them in boxes in the attic.

      , how do you feel about the Peter Pan suqeel that is coming out, or is out? I haven't heard much about it except it is coming. Any thoughts?

    I've never liked Kate's veodis however, Wild Man and Misty animations are exactly what I'd want from her if I could dictate what she did! I don't like artists in veodis I think it's trite. I don't want to see someone lip-syncing their song I want to see a story or a mini-film. These animations REALLY hit the spot. I'm just so impressed with where Kate is at now in her career it's like everything has been rehearsal for this time in her life.
