Bodies of Knights Templar found.

Archeologists have found remains of some Knights Templar, where they were killed fighting against the forces of Saladin.
They were discovered at a castle ruin near the River Jordan in Israel.

This is an exciting find, and I am surprised we do not hear about this in other news outlets. Just goes to show that most of the news networks are crap!

Hang on, isn't that historian getting a little hysterical? Afterall bodies of the Knights Templar must have littered the mediterranean at one time.

... Quote:
British historian Tom Asbridge yesterday hailed the find as the first provable example of actual Knights Templar.

The remains were found beneath the ruined walls of Jacob's Ford, an overthrown castle dating back to the Crusades, which had been lost for centuries.

They can be dated to the exact day -- August 29, 1179 -- that they were killed by Saladin, the feared Muslim leader who captured the fortress.

"Never before has it been possible to trace their remains to such an exact time in history,' Mr Asbridge said. "This discovery is the equivalent of the Holy Grail to archaeologists and historians. It is unparalleled."
