From the upheaval of the Crusades to the revolutionary development of the printing press, this handsomely illustrated survey delves into the events of the endlessly intriguing Middle Ages. Anita Baker begins by tracing the growth of dynasties and empires, including the Carolingians and the Ottomans, and chronicles the difficulties of daily life under the feudal system. A sweeping account of the era's politics, medical advancements, art, and literature, this history introduces such key figures from the period as Marco Polo, Saladin, and the Knights Templar. Also included are facsimile documents, with sample pages from the Gutenberg Bible, Magna Carta, the Domesday Book, and Joan of Arc's final letter.
