Overview As a global perspective grows and Eurocentricism wanes, it becomes more important, not less, to see where Europe came from. In this fascinating study, Lynette Olson explores the original formation of Europe from the fall of Rome to the First Crusade, and covers every European region, including the British Isles. From a family trying to find out what happened to their missing kinswoman to Khan Boris negotiating the entry of Bulgaria into the club of civilised nations, vivid case studies provide supporting detail in a coherent analysis of a period of great cultural change and weak social organisation. The Early Middle Ages - adopts an easy-to-follow century by century format - gives due attention to the female half of the population and the secular side of life - demonstrates how, out of the triad of Islam, Byzantium and the West, the latter was considered the 'Third World' of its day - features numerous maps, illustrations and a comprehensive Glossary. Authoritative and approachable, this essential introduction to a formative era of European history will engage scholars and students alike.
