I have no shame in admitting that I'm not fully aware of the events that occured during the crusades but this is interesting news nonetheless.
According to the article this should help shed light on how economic transactions were made at the time. It would be something else to know the
history of what really went on back then, not the watered down Christian version that we have all been lead to believe.
The depressing thing is that 1,000 years have past and the crusades are still in full effect. Maybe 1,000 years from now archaeologists will unearth
the Dimona nuclear plant and Israel's undeclared arsenal of nuclear weapons. That would be something else wouldn't it?
