Crucifixion nail found in Templar stronghold

Archaeologists working at a fort on Ilheu de Pontinha, just off the coast of Madeira, have discovered a carefully-preserved nail dating to the first or second century CE, leading to speculation that it might be a relic related to Christ.

The nail was found in a decorated box in the fort held by the Knights Templar during the 12th century, along with three skeletons and their swords, one decorated with the Templar's Cross.
