The Middle Ages by Mike Corbishley


The Middle Ages by Mike Corbishley

The Middle Ages, New Edition explores the fascinating period of European history known as the medieval era, the period from the decline of the Roman Empire ca. 350 CE to the opening of the Americas in the late 15th century. State-of-the art maps, authentic documents, and breathtaking works of art enhance the text and reconstruct life at all levels of society at the time. The first section focuses on the important empires and events that defined the Middle Ages, such as the barbarian movements, the empire of Justinian, Viking expansion, the Byzantine Empire, the Crusades, the German Empire, and the medieval church. The second part offers an examination of the individual countries that still make up Europe today, such as France, Italy, the British Isles, Spain and Portugal, Germany, Russia, and Poland. The Middle Ages, New Edition is a resourceful learning guide that takes readers on an enthralling journey through the medieval past.
