The world of mediaeval Europe continues to haunt us: its great works of art, its cathedrals and castles, many of its institutions - and yet this is a civilization from which we are fundamentally cut off. The uniquely terrible fire break of the 14th century - the famines, plagues and wars -meant that the Europe that slowly built itself in the 15th century was a very different place from the brilliant, confident world that had built Chartres cathedral or summoned up the passion for the Crusades.

A bit short and curt; overly focused on western Europe to the detriment of Middle, Eastern and Southern Europe.
It was clear in its explanations of many major trends and institutions and common practices, and briefly described some major conflicts.
Very small bibliography, and also a tiny suggested reading list.
