YEOVIL LITERARY FESTIVAL EVENT
Dan Jones - Crusaders
When Christian armies marched on Jerusalem in 1099, they began the most notorious period of conflict in medieval history: the crusades. In Crusaders, Best-selling author and broadcaster, Dan Jones delves into that time to introduce a vivid cast of characters both familiar and barely known – from Richard the Lionheart, Eleanor of Aquitaine and Saladin, to Margaret of Beverley, who defended Jerusalem with a saucepan on her head, and Enrico Dandolo, the blind doge of Venice, who helped burn and loot Constantinople.
This is an epic and deeply human history of an enthralling age.
