The History of the Medieval World by Susan Wise Bauer

The History of the Medieval World spans the history of the world from the conversion of Constantine through the first Crusade (picking up where The History of the Ancient World left off). It is told in a conversational, and sometimes very funny, format with lots of footnotes, endnotes, references, charts, pictures, and maps. I quite enjoyed reading it and am very happy to have learned so much about a time period I was previously a bit shaky on. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in world history.
