In this classic textbook history of early medieval Europe, Roger Collins provides a comprehensive account of the centuries during which Europe changed from being an abstract geographical expression to a new culturally coherent, if politically divided, entity. This essential volume:

  • examines how the social, economic and cultural structures of Antiquity were replaced by their medieval equivalents
  • defines the European context by looking at the external forces which helped to shape it through conflict
  • explores key topics such as the fall of the Roman Empire, the rise of both Christianity and Islam, the Vikings, and the expansion of Latin Christian culture into eastern Europe
  • features maps, genealogies, a chronology and bibliography to aid understanding and further study.
