What developments in government and society, food and farming, architecture, science and technology, art and literature, medicine, education and entertainment were there in the medieval world of Europe and how did these compare with those made during the same time period in the Islamic world and elsewhere in Africa and Asia? What was happening at the same time in the Americas? Packed with beautiful illustrations, this book, in the Parallel History series for readers upwards of age nine, will help you to explore the medieval world chronologically, with timelines to show you when major events and achievements took place.
