Review of Pirate Treasure of the Knights Templar (History Ch.)

Those who know me are aware that i’m a sucker for a good historical documentary.  Nothing is more exciting than a show based on fact that involves a solid mystery.  So naturally, when i stumbled across the Pirate Treasure of the Knights Templar (History Channel), I was more than a little keen to watch.

Pirate Treasure of the Knights TemplarThe series follows underwater explorer / archaeologist, Barry Clifford as he attempts to locate long missing pirate treasure linked to the famed Knights Templar.

The Templars, a secretive order formed during the Crusades are thought to have been killed off, but evidence exists that suggest the Templars changed their name and relocated (in part) to Portugal, where they became “The Order of Christ”.

Fast forward to the Age of Discovery of the 1500’s and 1600’s and the heart of piracy where names like Captain Kidd & William Condon are feared and famous ships like the Fiery Dragon and Adventure Galley are whispered in awe.  Was Kidd, a privateer turned pirate actually part of the Templars?  Did he hold or hide ancient Templar treasure?

Pirate Treasure of the Knights Templar

From Lisbon, Portugal to Île Sainte-Marie (now known as Nosy Boraha), Madagascar & Goa, India to Boston, USA the Pirate Treasure of the Knights Templar is as much journey as it is adventure.  Barry Clifford and his team visit locations of famous shipwrecks, dive among 300 year old treasures and travel the world to discover the truth.

The culmination; the discovery of many missing treasures, possibly including the biggest one of all.
