EnglandOn his deathbed in 1066, the childless English king, Edward the Confessor, nominated as his successor Harold Godwinson, the leader of England’s leading noble family. However, it seems that earlier in his reign Edward had also promised the throne to his cousin, William, who ruled the Duchy of Normandy across the English Channel. When Edward died and Harold assumed the role of king, William chose to fight for the crown. At the Battle of Hastings, which took place in October 1066, Harold was defeated. William was crowned two months later, on Christmas Day, in Westminster Abbey. Later, as an act of penance for the bloodshed caused by his conquest of England, William built Battle Abbey on the site of the Battle of Hastings in East Sussex. In this Expedition, we’ll explore both the battlefield and what remains of the abbey.

Baghdad, IraqAfter the destruction heaped upon archaeological sites by the Islamic State group, the collections at the National Museum of Iraq in Baghdad have taken on greater significance. It's now one of the only places you can find relics from the ancient cities that fell into the extremists' hands. As many as 4,000 archaeological sites are still under the domination of the Islamic State group and around 100 sites have been destroyed, according to Iraqi Culture Minister Firyad Rwandzi. The sites in their grip show the multiple civilizations that rose and fell during Iraq's long history, ranging from mosques, churches and small shrines to large sites of old cities. Fortunately, some of the artifacts from the sites in northern Iraq had been moved long ago to the National Museum.

Its animals, shaped by millions of years of isolation, are found nowhere else on Earth. Australia’s cities may not be as striking as its landscapes, but only because they are some of the safest, most diverse, and most laid-back places in the world.

Museum collections have three broad functions: they are used for education, research and as a permanent store for specimens of great historical and scientific importance. These include specimens of extinct species, as well as “type specimens” – the first specimen used to describe and name a new species. The collections provide a reference to the fauna, geology and cultural heritage of Australia and the region. In this Expedition, you’ll discover staff and researchers at work in the laboratories behind the scenes at the Australian Museum.

New York City, United StatesAs a girl growing up in America in the 1950s, Brenda Berkman found few opportunities to play sports, something she loved to do. She had what she calls a “click moment” when she was not allowed to join Little League Baseball: she understood then that, regardless of her abilities, she would not be allowed to do certain things just because she was a girl. Flash forward to the mid-1970’s . . . While a student at New York University Law School, Berkman began to entertain the idea of becoming a firefighter. But, as she learned, the New York City Fire Department didn’t hire women. Join this Expedition to follow Berkman and the group of women she led in the struggle to break down the barrier of gender discrimination in the FDNY.
