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.

Amazing podcast! 😃
I love listening to History of the Crusades all the time. It is a great, informative podcast and I listen to it when I draw.
I’ve been making my way slowly through this podcast. It’s taking a while because I only listen when I can be fully engaged with the lecture.
Excellent content and detail presented with personality and a dry wit.
Highly recommended listening.
Fairly presented and well-researched!
I’m in the midst of listening through (almost done!) and am really enjoying it. This podcast’s section of the Middle East crusades especially is a great appetite-whetter for a burgeoning consumer of medieval history.
