Interesting, but the clip of Hammett talking about the discovery is dated 1999. What has been happening for 8/9 years?

Is it connected with the "Bloodline" film coming out in May this year?

Craig McGinty

Hi Paul, yes they are all connected, click through to Ben Hammott website and you'll see he's been involved in the making of the Bloodline documentary.
It's all a good bit of fun isn't it?
All the best

I have been following this story for some years now and am glad it is finally coming to a conclusion with the film and hopefully Ben's book, which I understand he has been busy writing for the last few years. The film looks very exciting and I am looking forward to seeing what it will reveal. Hopefully it will solve some of the mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau, but still leave something for the rest of us to find.


Paul Kendall

Yes, Craig, it's loads of fun.

I've seen most of the TV stuff and been to the village. But now you've re-awoken my interest, especially with all those Daily Motion videos. I'm hooked again.

Have playlisted a couple of series. Will I have time to watch them again? It's the old story of having too much to do during retirement!!

Craig McGinty

Hi guys, is a great story and for those who want to see some more videos about Rennes-le-Chateau here is a list on the Daily Motion site:

All the best

The only thing Mr Hammott discovered was an American film director willing to film his lies and forgeries. This guy has a very shady reputation. The French authorities they talk about know absolutely nothing about this whole thing as attested by this website: Go watch the new Indiana Jones instead, where they openly admit they made up the story ;)

Craig McGinty

Hi Nick, thanks for pointing out the page about the Bloodline movie and more on the Knights Templar.

Even if there are many questions about it all, I think it's still an entertaining story.

And I'd forgotten about the Indiana Jones films being on this weekend :-)

All the best, Craig


Er...hello? Why do people automatically assume that interesting/important finds like these are hoaxes? From what I've seen it all looks very interesting. It is an important discovery no matter which way you look at it!

As for the DRAC, don't you people actually read anything? The Bloodline people DID meet with them and two of them have been to the site, as shown here:

So that's that, the evidence is there for all to see.

Why do you accept one person's opinion as gospel, someone who may have their own agenda, but discount someone who has actually found something like Ben Hammott? He has evidence of what he's found. Where's the the evidence from anybody else to prove that the discovery isn't real? Exactly, there is none! It is all hearsay and unfounded accusations.

The parchments found in the bottles discovered by Ben Hammott have been dated to the correct time by the Oxford RadioCarbon Dating unit.

All of the artefacts found by Hammott in the chest have been examined by experts, which includes the British museum. Chest details here:

Ben Hammott's finds are fully documented in his recently released book, Lost Tomb of the Knights Templar:

It has received excellent reviews, even those who were skeptics before reading it.

Thanks, Rose

Craig McGinty

Hi Rose, many thanks for your comment and I am sure people will explore further the links you've provided.
All the best, Craig

It is very interesting! What had happened? Every one has gone, noone does not ask or speak anything anymore. What had happened to that tomb, to those arctifacts in it. Actually I am very intereted in what had happened to the tomb of Knight Templar as we know, after it was given to research French governoment.
