There have always been oddities and curiosities in the field of archaeology - from relics of ancient cities, to unexplainable fossilised remains or the discovery of antique treasures.

For just about as long, there have been people who ask themselves 'How can I fake that?'

The documentary HOAX tells the story of six tricksters who almost got away with it. Fooling historians, experts in their field, colleagues, and the general public in charades that went on in some cases for decades.

The film explores the recurring themes of money, fame, nationalism, religion, romanticism and mental instability in this war on historical fact, and will have you wondering how much in the history books is real anyway?
