Remember that dream you once had about becoming #Cleopatra or maybe even an Egyptian pharaoh like Ramses III? See the family dysfunction that ran rampant in some of the biggest names throughout history.
Palace plots, assassination attempts and multiple marriages would have made family reunions in these royal lineages awkward, to say the least.

Learn how the written and the archaeological records can collide to uncover the identities of those long forgotten in history. We'll also take a look at the skeletons who are about to have their masks ripped away by archaeologists examining their remains. More below.
While history records the exploits of kings and queens, archaeologists mostly dig up anonymous common people -- with a few exceptions.

Vision research over the past 30 years has gradually proven that forbidden colors — reddish green and yellowish blue — are real, though some scientists still don't believe it.

Trying to match that paint color for that new room in your home? It's not as easy as you think. Take a look at why we always seem to land in the right color family but shades can cause our brains to go into meltdown. 
When you bring home the wrong color of paint from the hardware store, it may not be your foggy memory at fault. A new study finds that while the human brain can distinguish between millions of colors, it has difficulty remembering specific shades.

Did Marcantonio Raimondi ever cross pass with #LeonardodaVinci? See the engraving that may point to their chance meeting and when was this engraving made. More mysteries revealed.
A 500-year-old engraving may show Leonardo da Vinci playing a musical instrument called a lira da braccio. If verified, the engraving would represent just the third contemporary depiction of da Vinci still in existence.
