Really great voice, pity a bit robotic - I tire quickly. Too often a sarcastic tone underlies the Christian side of history.

Love this show! Also, it's surprisingly funny for a show about crusades.

I love this podcast! The facts are given from numerous viewpoints. The presenter has a pleasant speaking voice and a dry wit, from time to time, that I find amusing. Thank you for making the time and effort for a great history podcast!

Description

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.
