The Dawn of Mediaeval Europe: 476-918 by J.H.B. Masterman (1867 - 1933).
This volume by the British historian J.H.B. Masterman (1867-1933) is a short survey of the first four centuries after the fall of Rome. The author writes of Theodoric, King of the Ostrogoths, who sought to impose order on a shattered Italy, of the rise of the Franks under Clovis, and of the resurgence of the Eastern Empire under Justinian and his general, Belisarius. At the close of the book, Charlemagne's descendants are wrangling for power among themselves, while, writes Masterman, from "the north came the Norsemen, ravaging and plundering along every river valley which their long ships could sail; from the south came the Saracens, the pirates of the Mediterranean, and ... a foe more fierce and implacable still appeared on the eastern frontier in the Magyars or Hungarians." (Pamela Nagami)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Laurie Anne,

I had to edit the first post and template to put the “a” back in “Mediaeval”

Oops!

And it's PL OK. I was fascinated and started taking notes. But I don't think I'll ever be able to tell my Goths from my Vandals.

Best,

Barbara (coming to you via the nbn now, so get reading again!)
