Fleamarket find might be Templar artifact

Christie's auction house in London is trying to verify claims that an ornately-decorated piece of wood, found at an English car boot sale, might be the door of a Templar tabernacle, dating from between 700 and 1200 C.E. (photo)

The 10" x 4" (25 x 10 cm) artifact is "decorated with intricate military and religious images," and may be from a "tabernacle – a box used to carry and protect sacred texts – carried by the Knights Templar."
