In this audiobook, John Pruskin takes us from the fall of the Roman Empire to the cusp of the Italian Renaissance. You have a ringside seat as the remnants of the Roman Empire emerge from the tangled chaos of the barbarian conquests.
The Eastern Empire becomes Byzantine, Mohammedanism transforms culture in large parts of the West; Europe expands through the Crusades; marauding Vikings settle down in their permanent dwelling places; and feudal society takes definite shape. Meet the popes, peasants, lords, and ladies of the Middle Ages.
This book also includes a special one-hour lecture, "Music of the Middle Ages".

Mostly not great
- Tex E.
Worst narration I've experienced from Audible
I might buy another of his books, but not if he narrates it.
The ending was so abrupt I was certain there had to be another part to come. But there wasn't.
The narration was stilted and robotic, almost unbearable to listen to.
The subject matter was treated superficially, but adequately for an overview of the years discussed.
What was the deal with that ending? What a puzzle.
