Early Medieval Europe 300-1000
Third edition of Roger Collins' Early Medieval Europe. The book spans the history of Europe from the last centuries of the Roman Empire to 1000 AD. The author describes magnificently the last centuries of the Roman Empire in the west and the institution of Germanic kingdoms, how the Franks became the most important power in the west with the Carolingians. The author manages to interpret historical sources critically and to describe the complex processes that formed Europe in the early Middle Ages.
