As for the Holy Grail, anywhere that was a route for the Crusaders makes sense, not even sure if King Arthur was ever a real person, or whether he was based on a real person who fought the Saxons, Heard the lady in the lake and the sword in the stone were based n Sarmatian folklore.

Personally, it'd probably have been lost/destroyed a LOOONG time ago. As Jesus spent time with the more common man, even if people recognized the divine, I doubt they could afford to sacrifice any of their dinnerware.  IF it does still exist, I'd be looking along the most common routes to/from the Crusades: France, Germany, Italy, the UK, etc.

'he'd simply have to follow the Arthurian legends and look for it either in England, Scotland, or Wales'

Perhaps also France? What is the most convincing grail explanation?

I've only ever read of it in fiction

has anyone here ever heard of the Spear Of Longinus? Im curious about it, since I heard a legend that supposedly hitler got defeated after his army lost this spear of Longinus to general Patton.

In real life Indiana Jones would probably not have had to make a journey to the Middle East to find the Holy Grail, he'd simply have to follow the Arthurian legends and look for it either in England, Scotland, or Wales.

Every time I see the pic for this group, I think "Ark of the Covenant? We don't have many people asking for those. Twenty bucks is the best I can do."

Moneys... and what to do with em

Hello,I have spent the last year paying off all my credit card debt. I have paid off $10,000 so far, just $1,000 to go.I've been working two jobs to achieve this, and also studying part time so that I can change into a career of my choice (instead of just working in whatever jobs I can get).My next goal will be to save $10,000 as a safety fund.But then, I'm not sure...In what ways do you all invest? Or do you not invest at all? Do you prefer to have it still safety in the bank? Let me know, for…See More
