Covering the period from the fall of the Roman Empire through to the beginnings of the Renaissance, this indispensable volume brings the complex and colorful history of the Middle Ages to life. It investigates the major political, social and cultural changes, showing their spread throughout the middle ages, and takes into account recent developments in scholarship. It also includes geographical coverage, extending the broadest definition of Europe from the Atlantic coast to the Russian steppes; maps addressing a separate issue or series of events in Medieval history, with a commentary locating it in its broader context; and maps providing a vivid representation of the development of nations, peoples and social structures. With over 140 maps, expert commentaries and an extensive bibliography, this is the essential reference for students at all levels, libraries and all those who want a thorough, geographically based guide to medieval Europe.
