Ukraine is the only country in Europe fighting a bitter war on its own soil. Comedian Jamali Maddix travels there to meet with Azov, a far-right militant group that has risen in legitimacy despite its infamous neo-Nazi background.

Through all this, Jamali attempts to gain insight into Ukraine's swastika-adorned national heroes and work on his own knife-throwing skills.

This is a four-part series that uses history and forensic science to investigate real-life mysteries. At the heart of each episode is a genuine, undisputed artefact to be decoded. Whether it's a recently discovered artefact or one that's been famously studied by scholars, the decoding may be controversial, but the artefact is not. The series includes exclusive access to ancient artefacts like a recently identified Michelangelo, the first ever translation of an ancient manuscript found at the British Museum, and scientific results from the examination of Roman nails that may have been used in the crucifixion of Jesus. Featuring on location photography, recreations, graphics, and archival footage, we unravel the real life mysteries.
