Further to the discovery of what may well be a crusader sword which was mentioned in the previous post and which is outlined on the Mail Online at Sword found by scuba diver may have been dropped by a Crusader knight
other archaeological finds from the twelfth century have occurred recently.
The first is what appears to be a clear identification of the site of the battle of Arsuf in 1191. LiveScience has a report at Crusader battlefield where 'Richard the Lionheart' defeated Muslims is unearthed in Israel
For more about the battle I would recommend John Gillingham’s Richard I in the Yale English Monarchs series.
The second discovery is in the Smithsonian Magazine and is of a Crusader campsite in the northern part of the Holy Land. The account is at Archaeologists in Israel Unearth Only Known Crusader Encampment
