Crusades, The

Synopsis
The crusades inspired a sense of militant Christian identity in Western Europe and, through centuries of conflict and war, played a role in uniting disparate Muslim states against the invaders. Using new archaeological research, fresh scrutiny of the ancient battle sites and a re-examination of eyewitness accounts, this BBC series sets out to shed new light on the history of these wars.
