Nuneaton may have yielded another important archaeological discovery - the site of a Knights Templars house. The Knights Templars were members of a religous order who, during the Crusades, took vows of chastity, poverty and obedience and swore to save the Holy Land by fighting the infidel. From ancient documents it is known that the Knights Templars had a house in the Nuneaton district from about 1185. The site vanished a long time ago and has remained a mystery. A Ministry of Works dig near Bermuda Village appears to have solved the puzzle. Mr. Steven Taylor, a freelance archaeologist, is in charge of the dig. He is aided by Mrs. Eileen Gooder, of the Department of Extra Mural Studies at Birmonghsm University. She has been making a special study of the Knights Templars for nine years. Delving into local history seven years ago, she found references to Temple House, Arbury, as the likely site: because of a Maltese Cross on a wall. "But I felt there was something wrong with this theory," said Mrs. Gooder. So, working from old maps and documents, various trial holes were dug near Bermuda Village over the next few years, first from the west and then from the east. They led to the site where the present dig has uncovered foundations of a fairly large house and outbuildings.. "All the evidence pointed this way," said Mrs. Gooder. :"this is the first full-scale dig and everything is falling into place now. I think there is no doubt at all that this is site of the Knights Templar house." Other digs near Bermuda in recent years have revealed what was not known before - that it was an important medieaval pottery making centre. Pottery and tiles unearthed are being sent to museums.
Mr. and Mrs. Gooder examine part of the structure they have discovered at the dig on the Arbury Estate.
