Detecting the Truth - Fakes, Forgeries and Trickery

Library and Archives Canada has created an online exhibit called Detecting the Truth - Fakes, Forgeries and Trickery:
This website will let you discover why and how people have changed documents, paintings, maps, books, stamps and money throughout history. It will also show you the techniques and tools that experts such as conservators, archivists and librarians at the Library and Archives of Canada use to spot a fake.
