From the Byzantine Empire through the Renaissance, this book provides a photo tour of the Middle Ages around the world. The book is illustrated by more than 600 photos taken in 20 countries on five continents by the author or members of his family.

The book follows the Virginia Standards of Learning for World History 1, but anyone with an interest in this time period will enjoy the book. It tells the story of the rise and expansion of Islam, Charlemagne, the coming of the so-called Dark Ages, the Crusades, the reconquest of Spain, the Hundred Years War, the revival of trade and the rediscovery of Classical era knowledge, and the worldwide Renaissance.

About the Author

Leon Reed

I worked for 30 years as a defense consultant and military historian before taking early retirement and becoming a high school history and ESOL teacher. I started traveling to historic sites with my parents and I've been taking photos of my travels since I was 8 years old. I've been a part-time freelance photographer (mainly sports) for 10 years and have coached soccer teams for 20 years.
