I can tell you do avoid Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, but beyond that, I know little but what I've learned from the History Channel.

I can echo Tim's comment - Holy Blood and the Holy Grail is a load of tosh. I've also seen some good stuff on the TV that seemed pretty balanced - I think a lot of books on the subject are very biased one way or another.

I'll ask my dad when he gets back off his hols coz I know he's read a few.

Yep read that first, that's why I thought of asking you noble intelligent people Smile

Might be in trouble getting more jobs, redundant and all that not to mention a pile a metre high of books to read, currently reading Roots, something I have meant to do for some time and it is fantastic!

Last year Doctor when and I visited one of their churches in Temple Balsall. It was very interesting and they did a very good guided tour.

There's some suggested reading at the end of the article, though it's local to Temple Balsall.

It's in the middle of nowhere. We passed it 4 times before we noticed the spire in amongst the trees. Look out for an infant school and a car park opposite. Thumbs Up

Whatever you do, DON'T join the actual UK Knight's Templars, they are run by a conman who is on every watchlist the government and fraud office have! To be fair to him though, he does a nice ceremony and the robes are rather fetching (my Dad got conned in to joining years back...these freemasons, eh?!)

Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars
a great game in which involves the templars a little

just started reading the holy blood and the holy grail
an interesting work of fiction
but you have to give it to plantard he did his research
and planted the evidence well
