Publisher's Summary

In this indispensable volume, one of America's ranking scholars combines a life's work of research and teaching with the art of lively narration. Both authoritative and beautifully told, The Middle Ages is the full story of the thousand years between the fall of Rome and the Renaissance - a time that saw the rise of kings and emperors, the flowering of knighthood, the development of Europe, the increasing power of the Catholic Church, and the advent of the middle class.

Excellent history

Written in 1965 apparently but you wouldn't know it. Excellent survey of 1000 years and written in a narrative style akin to Bill Bryson's.

"It's All left to the imagination."

I really enjoyed the audiobook for the most part. It was very interesting to hear about what life was like for various types of people in the middle ages rather then endless names of kings and battles and dates. The big problem I had with this audiobook was that the later chapters talked a lot about art and architecture. It would have been very helpful to have have a pdf guidebook with PICTURES and illustrations. I even purchased the kindle ebook in hopes of getting pictures, diagrams and maps, but it had NONE! An ebook that discuss art and architecture without a single picture. Boo
