A 4-inch crucifixion-style nail dating from the time of Christ has been discovered in an ornate box at a fort that may have been a stronghold of knights who occupied Jerusalem during the Crusades, The Daily Mirror reports.
The newspaper quotes Christopher Macklin of the Knights Templar of Britannia as calling last summer's find "momentous."
He said evidence the nail had been handled a lot "indicates it was of great interest to many people" and that he believes the original Knights Templar thought it was a genuine artifact from Christ's crucifixion.
