Added: March 7, 2014 - 11:59

This episode of Museum Diaries, airing on TVO, follows the ROM's curators and technicians from the World Cultures department as they constantly research the pedigree of every piece that is presented in the ROM. MD bears witness to the techniques that a select group Conservators and Technicians use to reveal the authenticity of artifacts. While some fakes are easy to detect, others have been masterfully disguised that they've become iconic in their own fake right. The mission of the curators and technicians is to unveil fakes within the Museum's collection and avoid being fooled by masters of deception.
