This is archeology with heart! IMagine finding a rich historical record of a person revered by millions, whose life is known but whose remains have been elusive. Not anymore! In this well-documented program, a varied cast of explorers,scoentists, linguists, and the significant dead ( both good and evil, greedy and reverent) lead us on a hunt for the remains of the Buddha, traversing the environs of his birth and his journey, and, ultimately, his death. A mystery solved--satisfying, rich, important!
