History's Lost and Found is a television show from the History Channel first aired on August 7, 1999. Each episode is divided into different segments concerning a different "lost" item or artifact from history. Most of the time, the segments do not relate. Each segment runs around 7 minutes and in this time we learn the history, of several famous lost artifacts such as the flags from the Battle of Iwo Jima, and other not so famous artifacts like the first TV Dinner tray. Each segment ends with information on where this item is located. Some segments were reused in other episodes. Episodes of the show were released on VHS in 2001 and the first episode has been released on DVD. 2000 was the big year for the series as most of the episodes were created and aired during that year, but a few new episodes aired in 2004 and 2005.

The series is based on the book "Lucy's Bones, Sacred Stones and Einstein's Brain" by Harvey Rachlin.[1]

The series was produced by Atlas Media Corporation.[2] Executive Producer: Bruce David Klein.
