Recent confirmation for the survival of the four cases in Rosslyn has come through ground scans in the chapel taken over the past twenty years, which reveal a vault in the crypt containing four large boxes. This vault is located directly under the keystone and within the most energetically protected part of the chapel.

If Rosslyn Chapel was built as a copy of Solomon’s Templar or Herod’s later temple, as many believe, then this region of the chapel would correspond to the inner sanctum or Holy of Holies. Researcher Christopher Knight contends that Rosslyn Chapel is a model of Herod’s Temple, which is why it contains a so-called “unfinished” outer wall.

Knight asserts that this wall was added intentionally to give the Chapel the appearance of the ruins of Herod’s Temple - as it looked when the Templars excavated under it. If this is true, then Rosslyn Chapel was built to duplicate Herod’s Temple so that the Knights’ Jewish treasure could be symbolically returned to a version of its original hiding place in the Holy Land.

Really, the Burgundians left France to Jerusalem but took the "treasure" to Scotland, instead of to Portugal where two of the original 9 Templar were from and where their cousin, Count Henry of Portucale was busy working on a new kingdom?
Why does this author ignore the fact that the Templar Knights continued to exist under a renamed order, the Order of Christ?
It would be nice to follow facts...

The Knights Templar having a modicum of common sense immediately recognised 'Holy Land' geography as being inaccurate according to the bible and Josephus. https://youtu.be/54HSbN6kHis

Ummm, that's all very interesting. It could be true, but we weren't there to witness anything. But, I feel, it all could have been there at one time, then moved again west, out of the area totally. Neither do I believe the Holy Grail is the cup from last supper. No, it ws all moved where it was much safer.

Well aren't we going to dig up those 4 boxes for goodness sake - the waiting is terrible !!!

I've been reading everything (and anything) about Templars for the past 45 years (yeah I'm old) and nowhere did I find anything dynastic in their quest.

Ancient Places

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
