At the start of the first millennium AD, southern and western Europe formed part of the Mediterranean-based Roman Empire, the largest state western Eurasia has ever known, and was set firmly on a trajectory towards towns, writing, mosaics, and central heating. Central, northern and eastern Europe was home to subsistence farmers, living in wooden houses with mud floors, whose largest political units weighed in at no more than a few thousand people. By the year 1000, Mediterranean domination of the European landscape had been destroyed. Instead of one huge Empire facing loosely organised subsistence farmers, Europe – from the Atlantic almost to the Urals – was home to an interacting commonwealth of Christian states, many of which are still with us today . This book tells the story of the transformations which changed western Eurasia forever: of the birth of Europe itself.

Review:

`His book is a substantial achievement and clearly a helpful addition to a relatively neglected period of history.' --Mark Greaves, Catholic Herald

`Heather has a fine track record in rescuing historical babies from being thrown out with the revisionist bathwater. Here he reinstates mass migration as a key factor in the formation of modern Europe.'
--Mary Beard, Sunday Times

Book Description:

The epic story of the creation of Europe by the bestselling author of The Fall of Rome
