Nail 'from Jesus' crucifixion' found in monastery

A nail thought to have been used during the crucifixion of Jesus himself has been found inside a hidden chamber.
The artefact was discovered by archaeologists alongside several other items believed to be from the time of Jesus at the Milevsko monastery in the Czech Republic within a secret room that was once used to hide rare artefacts from the Hussites who raided the monastery in the 15th Century.

Measuring six inches in length, the relic was found inside a box with a 21-karat gold cross on the front and an inscription which reads "Jesus is King."

While it is currently unclear if the nail really is from the crucifixion of Jesus, it has been described by experts as a discovery potentially even more significant than that of the reliquary of St. Maurus - a gold box containing the partial remains of Saint Maurus, Saint John the Baptist and Saint Timothy.
Given the historical significance of the monastery, it is not outside the realms of possibility that something as valuable as a nail from the crucifixion could have ended up in its archives.

Efforts are now underway to verify its authenticity.

You think there’s a lot of nails, but there’s no fewer than 17 Holy Prepuces — Jesus’ shorn foreskin(s) — in Europe alone.  Make of that what you will.  —Jaylemurph

Written /decades/ after his death, many of them (but some are from centuries later).  As I said today elsewhere, there /is/ proof Jesus existed. But evidently not proof that suits you, personally. But to say there is no proof is as inaccurate as suggesting there’s definitive proof.  It’s all about how you choose to interpret evidence, and no one’s way is foolproof, authoritatively correct or free from influence.  —Jaylemurph

Bargain!  I've already got seventeen - how many more for the full set? I also have three of the four bundles of clothes the Roman soldiers shared out.  If anyone has the other one I'll give you £20 for it. Not true!  I've got a laminated copy of his birth certificate.  Only cost me £30.  Bargain!

The thing to do is test its composition and compare it to other roman nails of the period, It might or might not be an actual nail from the cross. There was a lot of trading in relics back in the past, . It would be cool if they could find any documentation to prove it was.

Modern DNA analysis.  Compare the nail traces to the Shroud of Turin. If they match, its either a miracle or evidence of a productive medieval relic factory.
