New book on The Templars with author Dan Jones this week at Third Place Books

Sunday, September 24, 2017

Dan Jones, author of the best-selling history The Plantagenets, is back with his new book on the history of the mysterious Knights Templar.


The Guardian says "In this thrillingly lucid account, Dan Jones demystifies the Templars in a story spanning hundreds of years and countless rulers, knights and archbishops, a seemingly disproportionate number of whom ended up beheaded."
