Episode 1: Fortress of the Knights Templar

Summary

The archaeologist goes in search of famous lost historical sites, beginning in Acre, Israel, where he hunts down the lost treasures of the mysterious Knights Templar.

Review

You probably first encountered “bionic” explorer Albert Yu-Min Lin in 2009, when he was searching for the lost tomb of Genghis Khan. Laid-back yet enthusiastic, his conversational style of presenting won him many fans. In this series, he’s travelling the world looking for other lost ancient sites (no wonder his middle name translates to “Citizen of the Universe”).

He starts with the Knights Templar in Acre, Israel, where once again he uses cutting-edge technology – ground-penetrating radar, drones etc – to plot exactly where the Templars’ guardhouse, through which their vast wealth was channeled, was sited. It’s not all technological trickery though – he consults grubbing-about-in-the-ground archaeologists, too.
