Reprint [2000]. Illustrated with colour photographs, diagrams and maps. From the cover: “This book describes the intriguing links between mediaeval Scandinavia, France and Jerusalem. How men of influence such as Bernard of Clairvaux, the Templar Grand Master Bertrand de Blanchefort and a Danish bishop all worked together in the twelfth century to preserve a fantastic secret. The trail has spanned Europe and has led as far as ancient Palestine. A further twist came when the authors found that in 1911 a forgotten Swedish-led expedition had burrowed beneath the City of David, echoing the activities of the fabled Knights Templar, almost eight hundred years earlier. What that expedition unearthed forms a bridge to an island two thousand miles away.”
