HI 204 Medieval History

This course begins as the Western Roman Empire is collapsing, c. 410 and ends with the arrival of the plague in 1348. We will encounter philosophers and saints, nobility and peasants, merchants and pirates, knights and many others. Against the backdrop of daily life in Medieval Europe, we will follow the romances of courtly love, the paths of Crusaders, and spend some time with heroes such as King Arthur and Robin Hood (and of course, Maid Marion), as well as with the ordinary men and women who are often forgotten. Get ready for more than just the Dark Ages!
