Author Maurice Cotterell shared his knowledge of ancient encoded secrets and the Holy Grail. He also traced how Sun-worshipping civilizations such as the Mayas of Mexico and the Viracochas of South America experienced reincarnations of the "son of God."
Cotterell said he is positive that theCeltic cup known as the Ardagh Chalice (kept in the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin) is the Holy Grail and outlined how it was buried with Joseph of Arimathaea and then discovered by King Arthur in the 5th century. It wasArthur who engraved the names of the 12 disciples on it along with two dragons, claimed Cotterell, who noted the same dragon marks are carved into the Amazing Lid of Palenque from the resting place of Lord Pacal of the Maya (whom he believes to be the reincarnation of Jesus).
Arthur broke the code of the Tara Brooch, a sister artifact to the Chalice, which led to his famed pulling of the sword and subsequent realization that he'd found the Holy Grail, Cotterell explained.
