      Cannibalism has long been considered a dark chapter in man's history. Yet we think of it only as isolated occurrences. Now a Neolithic burial pit in Germany, found filled with expertly butchered human remains, challenges those assumptions. Archaeologists have never seen anything like it--the deeper they dig, the more bizarre the scene becomes.National Geographic joins an international team of experts as they reopen the earth to understand violent events as they played out seven thousand years ago.moreless

      It may have been one of the most cataclysmic geologic events of the last 60 million years which shaped America as we know it today. The narrow, 400-mile-long Isthmus of Panama, once buried below the sea, rose up and connected North and South America. This new land bridge unleashed an astonishing animal encounter: Prehistoric predators and prey -- each unique to their worlds -- came face-to-face for the first time. An armor-plated ancestor of the armadillo. A saber-toothed marsupial. A horse-like creature with three-toed feet. Evolutionary history changed forever as animals from the continents clashed. National Geographic joins scientists on a quest to discover what happened and which creatures survived.moreless

      For the first time, the Catholic Church is allowing scientific experts and historians to openly test the veracity of the remains of reported saints. National Geographic has exclusive access to the forensic investigation. Deep in the crypt below the Cathedral of Reggio Emilia lie a set of bones believed to be those of two ancient saints, Chrysanthus and Daria. For more than 1,500 years they've been hidden away ... until now. Can science prove that these are a man and woman who were brutally executed by the Romans in the fight against a growing Christian faith?moreless

      A 9/11 survivor, an astronaut, and a blue hole diver all survived dramatically different traumatic events only to tell strikingly similar stories: each felt a mysterious presence that guided them to safety in their time of greatest peril. But what were these strange presences? Can they be explained? The devout call them guardian angels or divine encounters--others encounter a kind stranger. Could they have been angels? Phantoms? Or were their minds just playing tricks on them? National Geographic delves deep inside this phenomenon to break down the barrier between science and the supernatural. When faced with life and death, the brain flips an "angel switch," and help arrives-at least for some. Dubbed the "Third Man Factor," hundreds have reported this mysterious phenomenon--and now, science is taking a closer look, zeroing in on the location and the mechanism in the brain they believe may be responsible for these visions.moreless
