The Middle Ages

An Illustrated History

Barbara A. Hanawalt

Oxford Illustrated History

  • Captures the major historical and political events in great depth and clarity, but never loses sight of the plain and often-overlooked facts of lifelife as lived by peasants and townsfolk, kings and monks, men and women.
  • Offers fascinating tidbits on diverse facets of medieval society, from herbal medical cures to table etiquette and drinking habits, from tabloid-worthy court scandals to a unique listing of the rules of a monastic order.
  • Lavishly illustrated with art, photographs, documents, artifacts, and maps.
