Ancient Knife Could Lead to Holy Grail in Iceland

By Iceland Review

Head of rural district Hrunamannahreppur Ísólfur Gylfi Pálmason believes an ancient knife found in Kjölur mountain pass in 1990 in Iceland’s central highlands could lead the way to a secret underground dome where some believe the Holy Grail is being kept.

“The knife was discovered […] in a place where there is a good overlook of Skipholtskrókur, where the dome is believed to be located,” Pálmason told Fréttabladid. “A guard may have stood there to watch over the place.”

Pálmason has authorized a team of scientists, led by Italian cryptographer Giancarlo Gianazza, to search for an underground dome in Skipholtskrókur which they believe the Knights Templar created in the 13th century for hiding the Holy Grail.

“Gianazza has submitted some very credible theories on this matter,” Pálmason said. “The ancient knife […] may support his theories further.”
