Description

The Middle Ages lasted for about 1,000 years, beginning when the last Roman emperor lost power around 476 AD, and ending sometime between 1400 and 1450 AD. All across Europe there are signs of the medieval past. Cathedrals tell us of the stunning artistic and engineering skills people had. Castles tell us about the power of the nobles. The landscape was shaped by peasants who cleared forests and brought new land into cultivation. Modern nations like France, England, and Scotland took shape during this time. In this volume of the Spotlights series, Sarah McNeill explores and explains the world of the Middle Ages. Each double-page spread examines a particular aspect of life in medieval times. With cutaway views of castles and monasteries, descriptions of battles and sieges, and a look at the typical country life of peasants, The Middle Ages provides a fascinating picture of medieval civilization.show more
