There is in the upper midwest (I think Minnesota, but I'm not certain) a 
runestone- a runestone that was marvelled over by 'experts' and was thought 
to be 'evidence' that Scandahoovians (Leif Erickson types) had once settled 
there. And then a bunch of Scan Studies graduate student came forward and 
revealed that it was a hoax- that they had made it on a lark.

And there are still 'experts' who believe that it is genuine, and they are 
still arguing about the meaning of the text on the damn rock.

"It is our choices Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our 
abilities."  -Albus Dumbledore
