When Christopher Columbus returned to Spain from the New World, he gave his original log to the Sovereigns at royal court at Barcelona. Then Queen Isabella ordered the log to be copied. The original has not been seen since. Was it sequestered by the Spanish crown? Hidden by the Vatican? Sold off? Destroyed? Or simply...misplaced?
With Molly Brandenburg & Richard Rossner
Have you ever spent hours looking for something you simply lost? How about a hundred years? How about looking for a missing airplane? Or a vanished civilization? Every other Monday, Gone searches for everything lost. From D. B. Cooper to the Holy Grail, the Etruscan language to early Russian cosmonauts; if it disappeared, we’re looking. After all, just because something is gone, doesn’t mean it can’t be found. Gone is a production of Cutler Media and part of the Parcast Network.
