Image of Dan Jones: Crusaders

Following up his remarkable The Templars, best-selling historian Dan Jones joins us to mark the publication of his latest book, Crusaders. Following the series of religious wars in which the West attempted to wrest the Holy Lands from Islamic rule, this is a blood-soaked account of conflicts which have left an enduring imprint on world history.

Jones is a much loved chronicler of the middle ages, and a familiar face on TV screens. His fast paced, narrative driven books are thoroughly researched, and pulse with life. He is an excellent speaker, who deftly conjures the realities of the past.
