Title The Crusades. Episode 2, Clash of the titans / produced and directed by Sarah Jobling ; 360 Production for BBC Northern Ireland
Published London, England : BBC Worldwide, 2012


Description 1 online resource (50 minutes)
Summary Historical documentary series. Dr Thomas Asbridge examines the two figures who have come to embody Crusader war: Richard the Lionheart and Saladin. ABOUT THE SERIES Bloody and brutal, the Crusades were meant to be the religious wars to end all others. Except they didn't, and in modern times, their history has been hijacked by politics and religious fervour, with both Muslim and Western worlds misunderstanding the truth. This series sets out to shed new light on these legendary wars, and re-analyse the romanticised, idealised history to find out what really happened eight centuries ago, through detailed archaeology, and fresh scrutiny of ancient sites and long discarded eyewitness testimony
