Dan Jones : The TemplarsCity of Edinburgh Methodist Church, 25 Nicolson Square, Edinburgh EH8 9BX, UK
Dan Jones is a bestselling historian, TV presenter and award-winning journalist. His books include The Plantagenets, The Hollow Crown and his latest work, The Templars. The Order of The Templars were the wealthiest, most powerful – and most secretive – of the military orders that flourished in the crusading era. Their story – encompassing as it does the greatest international conflict of the Middle Ages, a network of international finance, a swift rise in wealth and influence followed by a bloody and humiliating fall – has left a comet's tail of mystery that continues to fascinate and inspire historians, novelists and conspiracy theorists.
