    Time Team: Village of the Templars

    The Knights Templar were a major power in the 12th and 13th centuries protecting pilgrims on their way to the Holy Land. They gave their name to the village of Templecombe in Somerset. Time Team visits the village in search of evidence of the Templars.


    Can the team find the preceptory which was their main base? And does the mysterious picture of the disembodied head of Christ hanging in the local church have anything to do with the order of fighting monks?

    Interesting trying to get into the heads of those who financed the Crusades, through farming, rather than in charging off to the Holy Land.
    And all that was lost in their dissolution is so disappointing. Imagine the artwork lost!

    Indeed it is a great pity that we have lost the information from those days.
