THE TEMPLARS' SECRET ISLAND is a journey that explores the many extraordinary links between Bornholm, France and Jerusalem and casts new light on some of the most important enigmas of modern science.
About the Author
The authors' collaboration began when Erling Haagensen, born on Bornholm, was beginning to find the strange truth of his island home and contacted Henry Lincoln who had already produced three books and three documentary films which had provided the first glimpse of the facts which were underlying the story.

The geometric 'proofs' however did test both my school days memory and concentration to the extent that I was able to switch off a few pages early.
There are some ascertains made that I feel are not accurate but then this is still an emerging area of history and takes nothing from the 'story' and exciting discoveries made. All of which add another piece to the most intriguing of all puzzles.
There is a lot of mathematics involved, lots of geometry and calculations but the basic thrust of it is explained simply and easily for any non-mathematicians out there. In short it regards the discovery of evidence that the builders of the churches of Bornholm were in possession of knowledge and expertise far in advance of that which was supposed to exist at the time.
Some really eye opening stuff and pretty hard to dispute, even for the sceptical reader. This is probably more aimed at people with a keen interest in the whole Templar/Freemasonry/Rennes-le-Chateau area and writers like Henry Lincoln, Michael Baigent etc. If you are one of these people, add this to your list.
