The Holy Grail as the Treasure of Solomon?
I wrote this article back in 2002 - when i was developing a theory that the object known as the Holy Grail might have been rooted in an archaeological solution. Reading it again, the article is rather naive and 'airy fairy' perhaps, but actually, i still believe the central premise to be somewhat nearer to the truth. Re-reading this has led me to perhaps do a Part Two - where the argument is much more refined and supported with more references etc from those academics in various fields such as archaeology, history, students of myth and folk-lore etc etc. That Part Two will appear on line in the very near future but i hope this 11 year old article captures the flavour of my ideas.
