Over 900 years ago, thousands of Christians invaded the Middle East, intent on taking the Holy Land from the Muslims. The following 200 years were marked by a series of military campaigns known as the Crusades.
Join us to follow the history of the Crusades from 1095 onwards. Castles, battles, religious clashes, Richard the Lionheart, the Assassins, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Saladin, the Knights Templar - all will feature as we examine one of the most interesting periods in history.

One of the longest running history podcasts I know. Enjoyed every one of them. And that is of course an understatement :)
I study Medieval History in university myself. I started listening to this podcast with the Crusade against the Cathars and since then I just love it! Due to the amount of research and especially the use of contemporary sources put into it, the podcast presents the history of the crusades in all its facets. I’d say it brings across almost as much knowledge if sometimes not more than an introductory course in university. Please keep on going with what you do!
Start with it and you will not be able to stop...
