The three principal sections of the book consist of chapters relating to the urban quarters of the Orders in Jerusalem, Acre and other cities, their numerous rural possessions, and the tens of castles built or purchased and expanded in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.A highly illustrated and detailed study, this comprehensive volume will be an essential read for any archaeology student or scholar of this period.
