The Knights Templar was a military and religious order that dominated medieval Europe for nearly two hundred years until it was suppressed in the early 1300s. The warrior monks disappeared from history into myth, their true nature forgotten and woven into fantasy. But the traces they left behind on the land can still be seen. With a combination of stunning photography, historical imagery and detailed descriptions, this book provides not only a history of the Templars but also the first comprehensive survey of all the Templar sites in Britain. Chapters include: The Templars in Europe; The Templars in Britain; The Tower of London; Temple Church; Strood Temple Manor; Cressing Temple; Royston Cave; Temple Church, Bristol; Sandford, Oxford; Burton upon Stather; Temple Hirst; Ludlow Castle, Shropshire; Ballentradoch/Temple, Midlothian; Kilmartin; Rosslyn Chapel; tons more. All color photos throughout this deluxe book. Imported from Britain.
