really liked it

Half-forgotten Europe is more like completely forgotten as many of the realms described here have faded from memory mentirely. Thuringia anyone? Or Etruria? Still, when your in the mood for the impermanence of everything this is hard to beat. On the other hand non-existance is coming to a state near you to soon and that isn't always encouraging either. The only other problem with Norman Davies is that he spoils you for any other historian.
