The Story of The Middle Ages
2nd Edition

Middle School - Early High School / Novice Low — Intermediate Mid

Overview

From the sacking of once-mighty Rome, to the Crusades, the meteoric rise of Christianity, and the Holy Roman Empire, The Story of the Middle Ages examines the tumultuous times of medieval history spanning over 1,000 years and several continents.

Often overshadowed by the historic epochs before and after, the saga of the Middles Ages has often been dismissed as a stagnant period of European history. But many advances were accomplished amidst the upheaval, and a colorful diversity of cultures and beliefs slowly transformed into forward momentum for innovation.

Explore the Middle Ages:

  • Meet Charlemagne and his knightly court, the barbarian hordes of Attila the Hun, Leif Erikson's stern seafaring Norsemen, and a host of other warring factions.
  • Follow the rise of Christianity as incredible ornate churches were constructed, brutal wars were waged to root out non-believers, and religious leaders grew to hold more power than Kings.
  • Witness the legendary order of knights. Some of these elite fighters were bound by honor, others not so much.
  • Experience a day eating boar, hunting wild birds with a falcon, and gathering to hear a traveling minstrel - just a day in the life of a 13th century English lord.

This informative textbook contains numerous photos, maps, and illustrations that bring the Middle Ages to life for students and history lovers of all ages.

Each chapter concludes with review questions, ideas for further discussion, and suggestions for research and other projects.
