A British Library lecture by Dan Jones
Listen as Dan Jones tells the three-hundred-year story of the Crusades – the sequence of religious wars fought across the high medieval period.
Drawing on his new book Crusaders, Dan Jones tells a tale soaked in Islamic, Christian and Jewish blood, peopled by extraordinary characters, characterised by both low ambition and high principle. These are events that have left an enduring imprint on relations between the Muslim world and the West.
Dan Jones is a broadcaster, award-winning journalist and pioneer of the resurgence of interest in medieval history. He is the bestselling author of Summer of Blood, The Plantagenets, Magna Carta, Realm Divided and The Templars.
At the Knowledge Centre of the British Library, 96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB.
