The Knights Templar was a military and religious order that dominated medieval Europe for nearly 200 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.
