Notes

Introductory text: "This DVD is created for students, teachers, and laymen. Although all text and photographs are copyrighted in the Library of Congress by the authors, permission is given to students and teachers to use the pictures and text in their research and their presentation of information in a classroom setting as long as credit is given to the authors. Use of photographs outside the classroom must have permission from the authors. The format of 'Rediscovery of the Elements' is a running text, with over 5000 photographs, to allow the visitor to experience the actual rediscovery, as we did, of the famous chemical sites. We welcome questions and comments from educators and students. For persons wanting to actually visit these sites, full directions including maps and GPS coordinates are furnished in the Hexagon articles and Garmin (TM) maps provided for each country."
