4:05 am
to evacuate tonight, although they knew this was possible. we've been experiencing these triple-digit temperatures for the past few days in southern california. you add to that dry brush and they're perfect conditions for a fire just like this one. it's unclear how many homes have burned. right now it's looking like at least 20. firefighters still don't have a cost on this fire. as for the hot drier weather, that should continue through saturday and possibly have some relief on sunday. errol? >> all right, carter evans. thank you for that close-up look in goleta, california. that's just one place. look. excessive heat and wildfires burning across southern california. a fire burning on both sides of the california/oregon border has killed at least one person and destroyed 40 buildings there. the fire is only 5% contain. but the gusty winds that drove it are expected to ease today.

4:09 am
would be incredibly risky. >> reporter: rescuers say the boys are still too weak and would neat to learn more about the diving equipment before they could try the escape system. the head of the mission said they'll try to wait until there's less of a risk to the boys' lives. oxygen levels have dropped to an alarming 15%, so crews have rushed to install a three-mile-long oxygen tube and have delivered more tanks to the boys' location. they have drained nearly 35 million gallons of water from the cave. it's unclear how much further the water level need drops so the boys could safe hi escape without having to swim underwater. it would be an extremely dangerous journey that already claimed the life of a former thai navy s.e.a.l. who passed out underwater friday incise the cave. another option to rescue the boys drilling a hole into the mountain, but that could take weeks or months. the trapped soccer players have
4:10 am

4:12 am
children it has separated from their parents, but they believe the figure to be under 3,000. president trump is spending the weekend at his new jersey golf course. paula reid is traveling with the president. paula, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. even as the controversy and confusion continues over reuniting the families, the president still believes he can win on this issue by painting democrats as weak on border security and throwing his full support behind immigration enforcement. >> we are with you 100%. >> reporter: defending its controversial immigration policies, the trump administration did a full court press this week. >> we will always stand proudly with the brave heroes of i.c.e. and our border control. >> reporter: as vice president pence and homeland secuity chief kiersten nielsen met.
4:13 am
his comments echoed comments made by president trump at rally in montana thursday. the president has repeatedly said he hopes democrats continue attacking i.c.e. because he thinks it will help republicans at the polls. >> the new platform of the democrat party is to abolish i.c.e. in other words, they want to abolish immigration enforcement entirely. that's what they want to do. >> reporter: but one issue that could hurt republicans in the midterms this november is a budding trade war. after the administration imposed a new 25% tariff on $34 billion of products imports from china that that went into effect friday. >> i think of this as the president does, as a trade does putte. >> reporter: white house trade adviser peter navarro claims there is no trade war and says
4:14 am
the admin stragsz is not worried about retaliation snielt's not going to bother our economy. it's not going to bother us if they try to bully our farmers or anybody else in the country. >> paula, we know president trump is expected to announce his nominee for the supreme court on monday. he appears to do things with a bit of reality show flair. we know he's narrowed his choices down to three finalists that all come with the stamp of approve from the conservative federalist society, but there are differences between them. what can you tell us about this potential final three? >> reporter: these final three represent the republican party. you have judge kavanaugh and
4:15 am
conne kethledge. any of these three judges if they are appointed, they would certainly tilt the court in a conservative direction for a skren racing to come. errol. >> paula reid in new jersey. paula, thank you. as we said, president trump is expected to make his choice public monday night. cbs news anchor jeff glor will have that announcement beginning at 9:00 p.m. here to discuss the president's choice, a potential trade war, and other issues is gabe debenedetti, national correspondent for "new york" magazine. gabe, good morning. >> good morning. >> if the democrats want to fight this, do they have any voting strength? >> they certainly don't have any strength right now. democrats right now are trying to figure out a way into this fight. i think what a lot of their
4:16 am
strategy is going to is to make this a fight about roe v. wade, about abortion politics, and try to win one or two. what they're trying to do is convince one or two republican senators not at to vote with their party. that's their only hope if they hope to stop president trump from confirming his next pick. and on the immigration, the deadline to reunite kids 5 and under is on tuesday. where does the government stand? >> we're not sure what the plan is right now. the administration has asked for more time. it doesn't appear they a going to get much more time. but the difficulty is there are multiple agencies involved in trying to reunify these families, and these agencies are not talking to each other in the most useful ways right now. we don't know how many families there are to be reunified. we don't know where they are in terms of talking to each other. this is going to be a long process one way or the other. the administration is saying, i
4:17 am
don't think you understand how it is. >> how is that to work out politically? you've seen the video of these reunions. you hear the tears. president trump in his speech doubled down. he's backing up i.c.e. and painting this midterm election as a decision between supporting i.c.e. and border security and not. while these reunions perhaps take place over the next few weeks, politically could that be risky? >> you do see republicans, particularly those associated with the white house, trying to turn it into a conversation how democrats want to abolish i.c.e. and get rid of border security al toechlkt some have asked for it and others said they need to rethink the agency entire lu. the real story is what's happening on the ground and with these families. so, of course, plitt eckly speaking, this is not what the white house wants to be seeing in the headlines, but it's the
4:18 am
story. it's difficult for the president. >> the administrator said we're not calling it a trade war, it's a trade dispute. china is calling it a trade war. what is the goal here? >> if it is not a trade war, it is a very, very, very large dispute. essentially what we have here is the administration doing what it said it was going to do. during the campaign, of course, over and over, chinachina's not treating us well. what they've been caught with is not being prepared for the retaliation. you have china, the eu, and dan fighting back. you have this large historic fight on both sides that may hurt the american economy, particularly in the midwest. also coming up is the summit with putin. how much do you think russian med willing be hanging over it? >> that's the beg question.
4:19 am
the other big question is whether it's going to happen, whether they'll sit down in the room together with no one else. that is terrifying a lot of u.s. lawmakers but also a lot of eu lawmakers who are essentially saying we can't trust putin and we're not sure we can trust trump, so we're not going to let them sit down with anyone else. the number one question is russian election meddling not only in the u.s. but across europe. president trump says, well, he says he didn't doet, so he didn't do it. that's disheartening even to republicans on capitol hill. >> thank you so much. tomorrow morning on "face the nation," margaret brennan's guests will include kay bailey hutcheson along with joni ernst and democrat is snoenator chris coons. pompeo said there was
4:20 am
progress but declined to go into specific. he did not meet with leader kim jong-un but did leave him a letter from president trump. the defense department officials are set to continue these talks in north korea next week. the pal. beach post reports almost every penny of the $706,000 donated by the donald j. trump foundation went to charities which held events at the president's mar-a-lago is estate dating back to 2008. some event organizers say receiving a donation interest the trump foundation was never an expectation, downplaying any notion the foundation was rewarding nonprofits which chose to support the family business. the foundation was shut down shortly after president trump took office. the globe and mail of toronto says the driver of a tractor trailer has been arrested three months after colliding with a bus and killing 16 people connected to a youth

it's to change the lives of the painters. brook silva-braga is here with that story. >> good morning. it all started when two american artists began sharing their paint with some kids they'd met, children and teenagers living in some very difficult situations. what the two experienced convinced them to take their art careers in a very difference direction. >> reporter: max frieder and joel bergner have organized 400 of these murals now, painting with refugee children from syria, hospitalized in mexico city, orphans in kenya, street kids from india. and whether the young painters know it or not, the point of the project isn't really to brighten up the walls, although they do that too. >> it's about people having the power and the opportunity to tell their own story and shape their own narrative. other people, society says, we're going to label you, give
4:46 am
you an identity, and it's a really negative one. and you're going to take that back, and actually, i'm going to create my own identity and my own story. >> and really it's about love. >> reporter: this mural in new york city was a canvas for special needs students from the manhattan school of career development. >> what does this mean to you? >> the idea is that it isn't also perfect. >> reporter: as well as high schoolers from the harvey milk school which serves lgbt students. each project starts with a meeting to work up themes and sketch out ideas. lavern is a sophomore at harvey milk. >> the goal is to paint what you are and the dreams. >> what's the dream you tried to put on the wall? >> i'm transgender, and so my dream is to have the body that represents my gender, so i drew a naked woman. my dream is to sort of be seen
4:47 am

4:48 am
"chime for change" campaign. >> it's like a solution for what others could not solve. >> reporter: but the problems will not be easily solved in places like the refugee camps of cox's bazar in bangladesh where more than half a million have fled from myanmar. >> art is being used as a tool. you haveinternational organizations providing food and things and a roof over their heads and those things are vital. but then you take a step back and say what about the conflict. doing that is a much more complicated issue. >> when you put the brush in their hands, what was the story they wanted to tell? >> one of the stories they wanted to tell was the story about a family of elephants and a family of elephants was carrying their homes over the river that divides myanmar and
4:49 am

right now. for example at the camp in bangladesh, the painting of the murals has continued now for months under the guidance of local artists who can work with the kids, and it's a chance for artists to be artists. >> it's amazing the projects. they've done that in philadelphia where they involve the communities. when you bring the community in and everybody creates something together, there's a sense of ownership and it's incredibly explosive. >> in schools there's tension between kids. one student said this is the one time we don't seem to be fighting and bickering. >> gorgeous works of art. >> amazing. >> impressive. >> stunning. >> brook silva-braga, thanks very much zwroo as annoying as they may be, digital assistants are helping us do more and more f every day, but you everybody never seen one quite like this, a floating head that comes when you call it to help astronauts

i felt this awful pain in my chest. i had a pe blood clot in my lung. i was scared. i had a dvt blood clot. having one really puts you in danger of having another. my doctor and i chose xarelto®. xarelto®. to help keep me protected. xarelto® is a latest-generation blood thinner that's... proven to treat and reduce the risk of dvt or pe blood clots from happening again. in clinical studies, almost 98% of patients on xarelto® did not experience another dvt or pe. xarelto® works differently. warfarin interferes with at least 6 of your body's natural blood-clotting factors. xarelto® is selective, targeting just one critical factor. don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase risk of blood clots. while taking, you may bruise more easily, or take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. it may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. get help right away for unexpected bleeding or unusual bruising. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. before starting, tell your doctor about all planned medical

4:55 am
administration. cimon was specifically configured to work with german astronaut alexander gerst for this mission. >> he will assist him during two different tasks so he will be able to provide him with the good advice during complex procedures and assist him in social interaction. >> reporter: cimon's name was inspired by a character from the 1940s "captain future" science fiction novels. however, when you think about a.i. in space, a less friendsly intelligence system named hall from stanley kubrick's "2001:a space odyssey" might come to mind. cimon can see, hear, and speak.
4:56 am
while his capabilities are somewhat limited right now, he can still perform tasks such as explaining experiments and explaining experiments and serving as an early warning system for technical issues. thanks to 12 in term fans, cimon is also mobile. a big part of this experiment is to see how artificial intelligence might help for future long-distance missions. >> if you think about a long measure, scientists think about the psychological reactions which will appear during that kind of flight. >> just amazing. cimon looks more frie s very fr human than hall. >> they looked at more human face but they figured a spherical ball would look less creepy. >> he has a hard shut-off just in case he's a little too controlling. >> he tries to become hall. it's one of the toughest

places to get to, but the voyage sure paid off for a team of scientist adventurer. we'll hear how their discovery in the desert is changing our knowledge of dinosaurs. for some of you, your local news is next. the rest of you, stick around. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." tell us the idea for this series. why did you focus on immigrant families? >> for me, being an immigrant, coming from sweden, born in africa, i've always looked up and had a deep love for america. being an immigrant, first of all there's a big false narrative out there right now that immigrants are not contributing to this country. nothing could be further from the truth. this show is really focusing on real americaing what it looks like in cities like detroit where the arab american community, such a vital part to businesses, but also being neighbors.% this is a way to show a human side about this heated
4:58 am
conversation that we're having now. this is not about numbers. it's about neighbors, fellow americans. >> you talk about the arab community that you start with in detroit. we're on the heels of the supreme court holding up muslims. what did you experience when you talked to these folks who are often in the crosshairs of national debate? >> well, it's unbelievable. first of all, they're the proudest to be americans. sometimes you're more patriotic because you fought so hard to get here. that's number one. also, you take everything in you power to take this idea that we're not contributing or creating jobs, we're not working, you want to overly show that. that's what this show is focusing on. we've seen incredible examples, someone like samir. the arab community, you can be
4:59 am
arab. part of the aremark american community and you could have been there for 50, 60 years.
5:00 am
welcome to "cbs this morning: saturday". i'm anthony mason, with adriana di diaz, and errol barnett. coming up this hour, for months it was a war of wards. but coming up the trade war between u.s. and china and what it could mean for consumers. plurks dear evan hansen. it's also changing lives. we'll show you how the musical has given the cast and creators greater meeting off the stage. but it's a great discovery.
5:01 am
it wasn't even found here in the u.s. that's ahead. but first an update to the news breaking overnight. excessive heat and high winds are feeling 60 large wildfires in the west. one of the most destructive is in goleta, california, near santa barbara, where at least 20 homes burn overnight. more than 3,000 people were forced to evacuate. more than a dozen other fires are burning this morning. carter evans has the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. as you see behind me, this home looks like it will be a total loss. there wasn't much firefighters could do to save it. it was a beautiful home. the fire started friday evening, into the later evening hours. people were not expecting this, and they had to to evacuate quickly because these flames were growing. it was blowing embers through the air. the. bers were landing on rooftops
5:02 am
and that's how these homes caught fire. this home has been burning throughout the evening. it's unclear how much has burn or how many homes have burned. firefighters think it could be upwards of 20 homes. you could see that was a deck. there was a jacuzzi here on this home. there's nothing left. we've had these triple-digit temperatures for the last day or so in california. they're expected to continue through today, and we should get some relief on sunday. errol? >> carter evans up close for us in goleta, california. thank you. in thailand, people are hoping for dryer conditions to aid the rescue of 12 youth soccer players and their coach who are trapped right now in av ka. authority says if rains continue, it will hamper rescue efforts and potentially raise dangerous carbon monoxide levels inside the cave. divers carried messages from the team to their families. the coach who led the team into the caves has apologized to the children's parents.
5:03 am
an operation to get the team out could begin this weekend. and just after midnight friday, the threat of a trade war between the u.s. and china moved from rhetoric to reality. the trump administration imposed tariffs on $34 billion worth of chinese goods. china immediately retaliated. >> here to tell us how it can affect consumers and business, derek thompson, senior editor at "the atlantic." welcome. >> thank you. good to be here. >> what's the latest? that's a good question. i don't know. there are two poblts. on the one hand there's the economic reason. the other is the political reason. the economic reason is it's reason tobl have gripes with what china is doing. what i they're essentially doing is forcing western tech companies to hand over the data as a precondition to entering the market. that's a no-no. they shouldn't do that. on the other hand, there's a
5:04 am
political reason. i think trump standing up against the world, not just china, but also canada and the eu, slapping tariffs on steel and aluminum, essentially saying, it's us against the world. i'm going to stand up and fight for you even though i don't tell you what it is i i'm fighting for you. >> how slong that going to go on? china is planning to hang on. this could hit trump supporters in the midwest, soybean producers and the like. >> i think you're exactly right. soybean producers, harley-davidson said they're going to move some of their factories overseas. when we think about a trade war, i think it's really useful to think of it as a tax war, right? it's a tax skirmish. and the tax skirmish that's going on between the u.s. and china is a little bit like two kids who go under water to test who can hold their breath the longest, right?
5:05 am
because what you're really doing in a trade war is punishing yourself, you're attacking your own consumers and saying how long can we hold out until my opponent changes his strategy. here's a problem with going into a trade war with china. they can hold their breath longer than anybody. this is a socialist country with unelected leaders who don't have five-year minimums and are under no pressure to change their strategy in the short term. so we picked the wrong kid to go into a breath-holding contest with. >> good analogy. >> china has racht itted up its strategy saying the u.s. is a gang of hoodlums. you mentioned harley-davidson. if it were to put tariffs on tech dpaeps, that could really hurt american companies but also a lot of companies produce their products like iphone in china.
5:06 am
they're also so interconnected. explain that. >> this is the tenth own goal. 87% of the computer companies in china subject to this tariff are non-chinese and a lot of them are americans. of the 30 districts motive affected by the soybean toffees that china has implemented on the u.s., 25 of them voted for donald trump. this is a self-inflicted wound. we're taxing ourselves in order to punish china for a completely unrelated terk problem. we should be working with the international community, building alliances. not trashing our neighbors. >> we'll see how far it goes. it's probably going escalate from here. it's about six after the hour p now here's look at the weather for your weekend.
5:07 am
it's a major hit on broadway. but one tony-winning musical is offering fans more than a fun night at the theater. we'll look at what may be driving "dear evan hansen's" life-saving legacy. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

♪ that was "you'll be found" from the hit show "dear evan hansen." it touches on a difficult topic but one that deserves attention. >> it's a focus on the problem of suicide in the country, the netflix series "13 republicans why" stirred controversy when it was blamed for possibly inspiring suicides. but remarkably "dear evan hansen" has been credited with the opposite, helping fans cope with issues that can lead to depression. jamie wax has more. >> good morning. less than two years since its broadway premier "dear evan hansen" continues a radical experiment. it's a realistic and
5:12 am
constructive approach to an issue that ails so many. did you fore see this piece having such huge impact when you began your work on it? >> everybody that we told the idea to thought we were insign. they were very polite about it. but it just didn't sound like a musical and didn't sound like anything that people thought had any kind of commercial viability. >> reporter: the success of "dear evan hansen" caught everybody by surprise, including play wright, steven levenson, who created the musical with the songwriting team benj pasek and justin paul. it tells the story of an unlikely bond between the socially anxious and isolated high school senior evan hansen and the family coping with the suicide of evan's class mite connor murphy. it's anything but your typical broadway blockbuster, but
5:13 am
according to levenson. >> what the audience found in this show was an appreciation and sense of authenticity. i think it's about empowering people and letting them know there is help and there are people that are there to listen. and as cheesy as it sounds, it's true. >> reporter: that message began resonating with audiences well before its success on broadway. rachel bay jones received a tony for her role as echb's mother heidi. >> when we did early productions, it was clear it was going to make an impact on a lot of paeople. >> reporter: taylor trnesch currently plays the role of evan hansen. >> i get piles of letters every week from people who have gone through experiences similar to evan's or to connor's.
5:14 am
it's eye-opening to see people feel safe writing it and how widespread it is. >> reporter: alex boniello plays connor murphy whose character takes his own life at the beginning of the musical. how does "dear evan hansen" stay so true and in so many ways so sharply brutally honest about different things and not glamorize the issue of suicide? >> it's so fascinating because it's something that i've been thinking a lot about. there's a lyric that my character since. "if you never get around to doing some remarkable thing, that doesn't mean that you're not worth remembering." when we look at someone like anthony bourdain or kate spade, these are people who've changed millions of lives. it still can't always fix or change whatever's going on that's causing the terrible issue for you, but to know that you're not alone and that your

life is worth something always. >> you don't have to be extraordinary to be love snoobl that's right. you're not alone ♪ when you're broken on the ground you will be found ♪ >> reporter: when the show premiered on broadway at the end of 2016, suicide rates were at a 30-year high. it's the second leading cause of death in peej age 0 to 24, the fourth leading cause in those between 35 and 54. while nearly 9% of those 18 to 25 admitted to having suicidal thoughts. >> we had no idea that the show would start the conversations that it started. and we're not experts. we quickly learned from the experts what to say and where to guide people and how to get people to the right places if they needed help. those early moves to kind of partner with those people and to get that conversation started were very beneficial to the show and kept us honest and kept us knowing the responsibility that
5:16 am
we had. >> reporter: early on the show teemed up with a number of advocacy and suicide prevention groups including the child mind institute and the jed foundation, first for guidance with the script and then for ongoing support. as an expert who's worked in this field your entire life, when you first saw the musical, was there something in you that said, yes, this story's going to help people? >> yes, absolutely. i saw how effective the audience was and that it was clear that it was clear it was really speaking to people in a very deep way. >> reporter: dr. victor sbharts is the chief medical officer of the jed foundation. you've actually done as an organization a number of intervention interventions connected to the show. >> yes, yes, we have. >> is it overstating to say that "dear evan hansen has saved lives? >> i don't think so. >> we're at a time when there
5:17 am
have been several high-profile suicides recently. is there a takeaway in your experience about how we should be talking about this? >> so much of my response is just as a storyteller. we always knew from a pretty early moment we want the audience to walk away feeling like these characters are going to be okay, one sent in a letter that said because of you, i didn't let go. >> we get so many thousands and thousands of letters. i'm telling you there are so many similarities in all of them, that that one thing alone has given me more hope strangely. thousands of people writing saying they've been touched. i felt this way, i did this, my family is like this. and to me that gives me so much heart and so much hope because we aren't alone. >> right. the reminder of like the

5:19 am
it's a family show in that it touches parents and kids. anybody can relate to it. it's just so brilliant. >> and the team behind it seems surprised at the amount of letters they get from the people who have struggled. >> i think they are. >> i think they realized from the response of people and the fact that people wanted to stick around and talk about it that they really needed to do more. >> powerful stuff. jamie, thanks so much. >> thank you. it is a barren part of the world, but it yielded untold riches. coming up next, how discoveries made on a desert expedition could change our understanding of dinosaurs. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." my day starts well before i'm even in the kitchen. i need my blood sugar to stay in control. so i asked about tresiba®. ♪ tresiba® ready ♪ tresiba® is a once-daily, long-acting insulin that lasts even longer than 24 hours.

"jurassic world: fallen kingdom" has earned more than $300 million in the first three weeks since it was released. that's a good indicator of our ongoing fascination with dinosaurs, and now there may be even more species to contemplate, thanks to the work of some globe-trotting scient t scientists who made a remarkable find in mongolia's gobi desert. >> the mission was backed by the explorers club. tell us about it. richard wiese, good morning. >> good morning to you. >> tell us about it. >> it ooh going to uber in a golden era of paleontology. if you thought you liked dinosaurs after watching the "jurassic park" thing, you're going to find troves of disco r discoveries. >> what did they find? >> they found 250 significant dig site. 's a pretty significant finding.
5:24 am
they found species and hundreds of bones. you see guys out there in the gobi desert. unlike the movie trailer, sometimes it's painstaking work with little sort of butter knives and little brushes, yeah, yeah, but it's exciting. >> you also use new technology to get a handle on where to dig. >> to me that's the exciting part. you're taking nasa technology. you're able to image large areas of the encht that i took consumer drones. they did some imaging. it's a fancy way of saying you're seeing more colors and variations in the soil. they toggle through some filters right there. this would have taken scientists literally decades to go through that kind of area. they were able to drive around with these suvs to areas.
5:25 am
where as roy chapman andrews who first went into the area almost 100 years ago, the real-life indiana jones, 2i7icily at that time, people took camels or horses. he was the first person to take motor cars. it's amazing in 100 years how far technology has gone. >> tell us a little bit about the new species that were discovered? >> a lot of people are familiar with the t-rex. turbo sawyers would have been the asian version of that. you know, they found a tooth from one of those that's about 5 1/2 inches long. >> there's a rare dinosaur egg you found as well? >> yeah. so think about this. you've been sitting in the sand or clay for 65 to 80 million years. you're looking at the tooth right there. but these eggs, you know, it was left intact by some miracle and you see embryonic material there, and it all increases our knowledge how dinosaurs came to

inhabit the sneerkt because we don't really know what they looked like either. there's this theory that they're similar to modern-day looking birds with dramatic coloring. >> it's funny you mention that. we always see a hollywood version of dinosaurs. as a kid, books were different than now. we now know some dinosaurs had feathers. if you look at a modern-day rooster, if you took away the feathers, it pretty much looks like a t-rex. there are living dinosaurs. but this was an exciting period because we have people coming out of the field in mongolia, yet with the push of a button, 7 billion people across the globe are finding out information about this. when darwin had his discovery in the galapagos islands, it took him years to write about it. 100 years to review, and hundreds more to accept his theory. we now not only have citizen science, but we have the

5:28 am
possibly resonate with you in any way, or does she. >> she does. >> how so? >> not in every way. >> no, i get that. >> in that way when you -- she's hard on herself, really hard on herself, and she's really affected by people. i think she bears a lot of pain, and i think that's something pretty common. i wasn't raised to share the pain and talk about it. so that's something i have in common with her because gillian can speak to this. she said something so beautiful, and i'll start crying if we start with this, how sometimes -- camille wears her pain and sometimes it would be so freeing, wouldn't it, if everyone could see the pain we're feeling. >> we all red "gone girl."

document written by the founding fathers. dr. christina duffy is an imaging scientist at the british library. >> it's real. >> it's definitely real. >> it's shortly after the declaration of independence itself. >> absolutely. >> why was it made and when? >> reporter: here's a clue. in one corner somebody tried to erase the date, but with uv light, duffy was able to bring it back, at least partly. >> our theory, it's either 1880 or 1890. >> reporter: so that means two years or more after it was declared. scholars think it was commissioned by james wilson. he may have wanted his own copy to put it on show. >> we found some traces of iron around the corners of the document around some tears, which suggest that it might have
5:32 am
been pinned up with nails at some point, as a ceremonial piece of pashment. >> reporter: there is one elaborate ceremonial copy. they went on a hunt to find every copy of the declaration that survived. >> every copy of the declaration of independence has a different story. it has a different method of production, a different audience, and a different piece in the history of this important document and the words of it that continue to imspire us. >> reporter: this praeshs version arrived at the west sussex archive unremarked in the 1950s in a batch of legal documents. at least rediscovered, it's giving up at least some of its secrets. >> it was written in the states, either probably in philadelphia or new york. we know where it ended up in 1956. what we need to find out is what happened in between, and that's the research that's still ongoing. >> reporter: and while it does. the sussex deck lags will be
