Dan Jones takes a fresh look at events that still have consequences today
Popular historian and broadcaster Dan Jones, bestselling author of The Templars and The Plantagenets, turns his attention to the Crusades.
This series of medieval religious wars, which lasted for more than 200 years, saw armies from European Christian states set out to wrest the Holy Land from Islamic rule. They were ruthless. They were bloody. They also brought benefits, including new trade routes and an exchange of knowledge. But who was behind the Crusades? Who were the men (and women) who took part? Why have they left such an enduring imprint on relations between the Muslim world and the West?
