Nazi loot, Roman coins, Viking artefacts, Celtic gold - and millions of pounds worth of classic cars and motor bikes... This is just some of the priceless treasure that regularly passes through the hands of the world’s most prolific (yet completely unknown) treasure hunters Hamilton White and Carl Cookson. But now they have discovered their rarest treasure yet – a hoard of Knights Templar treasure. With no significant Templar artefacts ever discovered before this could rewrite the history of the Order of the Knights Templar.
The Order of the Knights Templar is notoriously one of the most secretive organisations in history, so will proving that the objects are real even be possible? Lost Relics of the Knights Templar follows Carl and Hamilton on this historic quest.
With the help of historians and authors, including Dan Jones, Carl and Hamilton learn more about Templar ceremonies and history, as well as what significant part each item in their extraordinary treasure hoard might have played. The guys also need to establish the provenance of each relic before they can reveal their hoard to the world.
