Crusades: Jerusalem

Crusades: Jerusalem is the second part of the Crusades with Terry Jones. In this episode, the narrator sets out on the 1000-mile walk from the Bosporus to the Holy City – a journey that took the Crusaders two years. Terry recounts how four in five Crusaders died on the road trying to cross a mountain in torrential rain wearing 200 pounds of iron, and how they became religious fanatics who slaughtered the population of Jerusalem.
