Tens of millions of people worldwide were exposed to the mystery of Rosslyn in Dan Brown's blockbuster novel "The Da Vinci Code", and hundreds of thousands have since travelled there to marvel at its magnificent carvings and to wonder if some fabulous treasure lies buried beneath its medieval walls.
The astonishing story of Rosslyn brings together a host of famous figures from history and legend, including Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary, King Arthur, Merlin the Wizard, Sir Gawain, Alexander the Great, William Wallace, King Robert the Bruce, Mary Queen of Scots and Joan of Arc.
Pseudo-history writers, Grail seekers and conspiracy theorists claim that the secret history of the Holy Bloodline of Christ, the Ark of the Covenant, the Lost Gospels of Christ, the embalmed head of Jesus, and the legendary treasure of the Knights Templar are all buried under Rosslyn Chapel.
But what is the truth? Did the Templars really escape to Scotland? Does the enchanted White Lady of Rosslyn actually guard the Holy Grail?
Was Rosslyn Chapel built to hide the Treasure of the Temple of Jerusalem?After 500 years shrouded in mystery and legend, the true story of the chapel, the castle and the Knights of the Round Table is revealed.
With material culled from Dark Age and medieval sources, this startling book holds the key to the mystery of Rosslyn.
