New York : Pearson Education, 2012, XVII-394 p.
Résumé éditeur :
The centuries following the collapse of the Roman Empire saw extraordinary change across Western Europe – in institutions, social structure, rural and urban life, religion, learning, scholarship and art. This innovative textbook provides students coming to the study of early medieval Europe for the first time with the conceptual and methodological tools to investigate the period for themselves. It identifies major research questions and historiographical debates and offers guidance on how to engage with and evaluate the major documentary sources and the evidence of art history and archaeology. (4e de couv.)
