Unit description:

Pick up the story at 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. Explore Europe at its widest, as well as the ways in which Europeans influenced and were influenced by the peoples of Byzantium, the Holy Land, and western Asia. Topics include: the rise and influence of the nobility; Christian, Muslim and Jewish interactions; popular and official religious practices; the power of the written word; systems of personal relations; the geographic and economic expansion of Europe; the influence of ideas such as Christendom; differing methodological approaches to history; and modern constructions of the period known as ‘The Middle Ages’.
