Sumptuously illustrating the vivid parade of a thousand years of history, this comprehensive historical atlas concentrates on the Mediterranean world but also shows what happened across the globe between A.D. 400 and 1500 —from the fall of Rome to the age of discovery. Every page glistens with period works of art, fascinating maps, quotes from medieval figures, close-ups of intriguing artifacts, and rich landscape photographs of the places where battles were fought and monarchs were crowned. For every century, a signature city is spotlighted to represent that era's developments. Time lines connect the many dramatic events that took place in these dark and exciting times, which continue to shape our world today. Written by a team of veteran National Geographic writers, this richly illustrated reference includes full index, reading list, and glossary.

    Comments about The Medieval World:

    There are typoes all over the place. There is a mix up in the index: it gives a page number about Richard III but when you turn to the page you get something about Richard II. That may be minor, but it's kind of hard to respect a [$] book with silly mistakes (I have the deluxe ed.). Also Richard III (my favorite king) gets about a paragraph and a half of recognition. No pics of him that I've seen so far.

Hidden in a dusty library, this obscure and strange manuscript contains unique imagery of bloody but highly sophisticated combat, futuristic designs and inventions, ingenious engineering and judicial duels. Hans Talhoffer’s 1459 fight book is one of the medieval worlds’ most mysterious manuscripts, challenging the legends and myths that surrounded this often misunderstood period of our history.
