The Cross of Lorraine is a symbol of mid-evil Knights Order of the first crusades, and continues to this day.
Where they actually just sort of evil or did you mean medieval?
Will watch the show though, always nice with history stuff.
World war one vets?
The 79th infantry division (liberty division) used the cross of lorraine as their symbol in WW1, and still do even today.
It would be intresting to know what unit the old guys grandfather served in in the war.
He could have picked up something of the history while "over there" and thought it could be a good scam.
Why dont they give us a complete translation of whats written on the crosses, i only see close up after close up of the word iacobus, Jacob in latin.edit on AM1Mon20141972 by andy1972 because: (no reason given)

And yet again, you have linked the SAME page the other two members linked. Are there no others debunking this?
I find that suspicious of this guy, myself!
Who's to say this person didn't make all this up to discredit the artifacts being real so it wouldn't interfere with something in history? It takes a lot of paper to rewrite everything, you know?

There is a book on them, which discusses the evidence. Calalus: A Roman Jewish colony in America from the time of Charlemagne through Alfred the Great www.amazon.com...
Might be worth reading. Although, you might hope for it in the library, it seems to be a very pricey book.edit on 6-1-2014 by OpinionatedB because: (no reason given)
One of the artifacts shows the Cross of Lorraine, which is a symbol of the Knights Templar.
Another inscription shows the date of AD 800...
It's explained in the video.

Don't bother watching it. Apparently, everything in the show has been faked, according to the members here.
Have a wonderful day.
