Siege of Acre 1291 - Guillaume de Clermont Defending Ptolemais from the Saracen invasion. The fall of Acre signaled the end of the Jerusalem crusades. No effective crusade was raised to recapture the Holy Land afterwards, though talk of further crusades was common enough. By 1291, other ideals had captured the interest and enthusiasm of the monarchs and nobility of Europe and even strenuous papal efforts to raise expeditions to retake the Holy Land met with little response. by mable

After the disastrous battle of the Horns of Hattin in July of 1187, much of the Holy Land – including the city of Jerusalem – captured during the First Crusade was lost. All that remained of the Christian holdings were the Principality of Antioch, the County of Tripoli, and the city of Tyre. Soon after news of the disaster at Hattin reached Europe, the cry went up for another crusade to re-capture the lost lands. by Divonsir Borges

Crak de Montreal (Jordan) - built in 1115 by Baldwin I of Jerusalem. The knights of the castle controlled the commerce of the area, as pilgrims and merchants needed permission to travel past. Saladin, who invaded the kingdom in 1187, laid siege to Montreal for two years, but was unable to use siege engines because of the hill. It is said that, during the siege, the defending crusader knights sold their wives and children for food. The castle finally fell to Saladin in May 1189. by sara

The sword of Godfrey of Bouillon on display in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Godfrey was a medieval Frankish knight who was one of the leaders of the First Crusade from 1096 until his death. Godfrey became the first ruler of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, although he refused the title "King"; he believed that the true King of Jerusalem is Christ. The size of this sword is awesome. Try to think of fighting for a full day by wielding this weapon with one hand. by cassandra

The great sea expeditions of the Viking Age - The basis of the great sea expeditions undertaken by the Vikings was ship technology. The Viking ship was a piece of high technology based upon hundreds of years of development and experience. It was distinguished by its narrow keel and shallow draught. This made even the largest ocean-going warships suitable for sailing onto beaches and up rivers. Such tactics enabled, for example, the siege of Paris to be carried out in the year 885. by DeeDeeBean

Hezekiah's Tunnel, or the Siloam Tunnel, was dug underneath the City of David in Jerusalem before 701 BC during the reign of Hezekiah of Judah. The tunnel, leading from the Gihon Spring to the Pool of Siloam, was designed as an aqueduct to provide Jerusalem with water during an impending siege by the Assyrians, led by Sennacherib. by sherrie

According to modern myth the chastity belt was used as an anti-temptation device during the Crusades. When the knight left for the Holy Lands on the Crusades, his Lady would wear a chastity belt to preserve her faithfulness to him and the key was passed to the religious leaders to keep safe. by lynne

711 to 1492 Spain, as it is now known, was ruled by Black African Moors. The etymology of the word ‘Moor’ is black, or dark. Moors were a mix of Black African and Arabic Muslims who ruled Spain and the rest of the Iberian peninsula between 711 and 1492. The Moors were constantly defending against invading Christian Europeans from the north. This period as we are brainwashed to know from K-12 is called the Reconquista, or the reconquest, during the Christian/Muslim war of the Crusades. by olive

The synagogue, dated to the 2nd Temple period (50BC - 100AD) is one of the oldest ever found, and was unearthed at Migdal, which Christians believe to be the birthplace of Mary Magdalene, a leading follower of Jesus. Archaeologists were particularly excited by the discovery of the stone depicting the menorah -- a seven-branched candelabrum -- from the Jewish Second Temple which was destroyed in 70 AD during the Roman siege of Jerusalem. by kristine
