Pick up the story in 1000 when the Vikings have given a kick-start to Europe's economy and the warrior mentality of the early Middle Ages is giving way to the rising aristocrats. From this starting-point, the unit will examine the fundamental changes which took place in Europe between the eleventh and early fourteenth centuries, e.g. political developments towards state formation, increasing lay literacy, the rise of the nobility and the chivalric ethos, new institutional and grass-roots Christian movements, urban expansion, universities and the 'twelfth-century renaissance', and agricultural and technological innovations. This unit focuses on these foundational developments in Europe's history, with particular attention to France, Germany, and England.
