Have you ever wondered how the English Parliament started, or when William the Conqueror (or William the Bastard as he was also known) was born and died, or how about when writing tools were invented? For once all these answers and so many more are contained within one impressive, colorful book.

The Encyclopedia of the Middle Ages works just like any other encyclopedia or dictionary: if you want to look something up, just turn to the corresponding letter. This book has it all, as well as facts and figures up the wazoo. And if you’ve ever thought about competing on Jeopardy and didn’t know which source to turn to and study for the Middle Ages, well here’s your answer.

Originally published on November 12th 2001.
