NEW paperbacks with Knights Templar interest
Close to the crossroads of the ancient Icknield Way and Ermine Street, in the centre of the market town of Royston in Hertfordshire, is a man made cave. It was a secret place discovered in 1742. Seventeen feet in diameter and over twenty five feet high, the lower ten feet are covered with low reliefv carvings of the Saints Christopher, Katherine, Lawrence and George, a memorial to a man being burned at the stake and a symbolic grave for a death and rebirth ritual.
Some of the carvings are clearly heretical and there are numerous references to early Freemasonry. Royston Cave was not just a hole in the ground casually decorated, it was a carefully planned stage on which a ritual of initiation was carried out.
