There’s been a lot of legends and lost artifacts over the years that have fascinated scholars, archeologists and treasure hunters. Whether it’s Atlantis, the lost Ark of the Covenant or the fabled Amber Room, there’s no shortage of mysteries to fascinate us. That said, I think it’s safe to say that nothing is more desired and coveted as the Holy Grail.
Even now, we use the term to describe something as the greatest and rarest treasure, like redheads or funny gifs, and over the last 8 centuries, no one object has had more stories written about it, and more quests to find it. It’s a legend tied in with religious beliefs, Arthurian stories and wild conspiracy theories.
