Quest for Holy Grail Begins in Iceland This Month

A group of Icelandic and foreign scientists and Christian mythology enthusiasts will begin their search for the Holy Grail in Iceland later this month. They believe the grail and other Knights Templar treasures are buried near Kjölur in the central highlands.

The group has been given permission from the local authorities in Hrunamannahreppur municipality to install a geophysical survey instrument in a ditch in Skipholtskrókur to search for a secret underground dome, Fréttabladid reports.

The group determined Kjölur was a likely hiding place after certain clues were found in “The Last Supper” by Leonardo da Vinci. Italian cryptographer Giancarlo Gianazza said he noticed consistency between the painting an aerial photograph of Kjölur.
