Mississippi Valley, 1605: Indians lock French explorers into a chamber in which they get disintegrated. 2001: Sydney and her student Adam are onto his ancestors' fabled Eyes of Toklamanee, but they are pursued by mysterious gunmen.
Did You Know?
Sydney says that the authenticity of the journal of the French explorers dated 1605 is being determined by radiocarbon dating. For an item supposedly about 400 years old, in 2001, when the episode takes place, a typical uncertainty for dating for samples younger than 10,000 years would have been about +/- 50 years, meaning that the book would have been dated anywhere from 1555 to 1655, rendering the dating non-conclusive.
