International and further national coverage for £15bn Lemminkäinen Hoard update news story

There has been further national and international coverage for author and Bock Saga historian Carl Borgen

Following coverage in the national press at the close of last week, Yahoo News has now picked up the story that a group of amateur archaeologists dubbed the “Temple Twelve” have unearthed what could be the first reliable evidence of the existence of the world’s largest and most valuable undiscovered treasure trove.

The announcement of the discovery of a 10th century axe –  said to “very strongly support” the existence  of the fabled ‘Lemminkäinen Temple’ and priceless hoard it is thought to contain – has also been covered by news media in Europe.

According to Scandinavian folklore, the Temple lies in the bowels of a Finnish cave and is home to generations of pagan riches including “mountains” of gemstones, gold, and rare antiquities with a conservative value of at least £15billion.

The cave’s entrance and limestone passageways are said to have been filled with mud and clay in the Middle Ages to protect the Temple within from Christian crusaders.

Its treasures, which are said to lie in a series of interconnected chambers 50ft below the surface and 150ft from the entrance, have remained undisturbed ever since.

Proof of its existence has been elusive despite a decades-long effort but the Temple Twelve could now be on the verge of hitting the jackpot after finding an ancient axe head inside the mouth of the cave.

The tool, which was buried in a mound of granite rubble and clay, is thought to be around 1,000 years old and lends “firm weight” to the notion that the cave was purposefully filled-in by hand and not by the natural build-up of silt over the centuries.
