Buried: Knights Templar and the Holy Grail
The Knights Templar build a 4,000-mile network from Paris to Jerusalem; Mikey Kay and Garth Baldwin investigate the knights’ underground movements to discover if they escaped being destroyed in 1307 and took the Holy Grail with them.
Part 1: Holy City Holy Grail
A new investigation into the true fate of the Knights Templar is launched to see if the order really fell in 1307 or if they continued on in secret. The team begins their probe in Jerusalem, the epicenter of the Templar’s power, where they explore tunnels and a safe house that could have been used to get sacred holy relics to safety during the fall of the city.
Part 2: Last Stand in the Holy Land
In Acre, Israel, the team goes underground to investigate the purpose of the Templars’ tunnel system, theorizing they may have contemplated a covert landing in the sea caves.
Part 3: Surviving the End
Spotlighting the Templars moment of reckoning, the fall of the order in 1307. Included: evidence of a Templar smuggling operation to save their treasure; relics before the fateful day of Friday the 13th, when knights all over France were arrested; and a mysterious monastery in Spain that may hold clues to the knights’ ultimate survival as a secret organization.
Part 4: Land of Secrets
Seven years after the alleged end of the Templars, signs the knights were rising again appear in Portugal. The team investigates a shadowy plan to restart the Templars under a new alias and their tactics as these “Templars 2.0” quietly consolidate power and lay plans to expand around the world.
