The Sunday Times best-selling author of The Templars tells the story of the Crusades, a thousand-year-old conflict which continues to shape the modern world, and the people who fought in them. Dan Jones, best-selling chronicler of the Middle Ages, turns his attention to the history of the Crusades – the sequence of religious wars fought between the late eleventh and late medieval periods, in which armies from European Christian states attempted to wrest the Holy Land from Islamic rule, and which have left an enduring imprint on relations between the Muslim world and the West. Dan Snow defines the author as ‘the master of medieval narrative history’. We’re delighted to welcome him for a prestigious and fascinating evening.
