Published by Manchester University Press

  • Fifteen top scholars in Carolingian studies writing on themes central to the study of Charlemagne and his age - no other book on the market achieves such a wide coverage and such a range of expertise
  • Provides a survey of key themes and evidence, synthesises the debates of the past decades, offers new approaches and suggests new avenues for research, with a bibiography of main works in the major European languages as well as the scholarship in English
  • Offers an introduction for non-specialists and scholars into the key debates and literature of cognate disciplines and approaches
  • An interdisciplinary volume that, for the first time, integrates the archaeological evidence from settlements and coins into the historical discussion
  • Aimed at undergraduates, with an overview of key issues and sources, but the juxtaposition of different approaches will also be invaluable and stimulating for postgraduates and experts
