This new historical atlas - richly illustrated with photographs, artwork recreations and full-colour maps - explores the Middle Ages from the coming of the barbarian invasions in the fourth century to the first voyages to the New World in the sixteenth.

Coverage of major events - the Hundred Years' War, the Christian Reconquest of Spain - is supplemented by discussion of such key topics as the medieval economy, the growth of towns and the spread of printing, resulting in a rich and multi-faceted introduction to Europe and its neighbours in the Middle Ages.

Review by

It is what it the title says, of course, and it was everything I expected it to be. The maps and short paragraphs of historical information surrounding the maps are very interesting and detailed. If you have a great deal of interest in the Middle Ages, this book is very helpful for attaining a visual picture of the world you read about.
