P. J. (Peter J.) Heather
Description: "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 organized 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"--Provided by publisher.

Description: Every year millions of Americans celebrate St. Patrick's Day, but they may not be aware of how great an influence St. Patrick was on the subsequent history of civilization. Not only did he bring Christianity to Ireland, he instilled a sense of literacy and learning that would create the conditions that allowed Ireland to become "the isle of saints and scholars"--And thus preserve Western culture while Europe was being overrun by barbarians.

Description: "In 1301, peace exists between Edward of England and his archrival Philip IV of France; a peace, diplomats hope, that will be confirmed by a marriage between the young Prince of Wales and Philip's daughter Isabelle. Philip hopes to break the peace with England by discovering some scandal touching the young English heir. With the disturbing death of Lady Eleanor, who is found with her neck broken at the foot of a convent staircase, the Prince's secrets are threatened with exposure. Edward sends Corbett to investigate, and the clerk discovers knots of scandal and deceit that may entangle the English Crown."--Fantasticfiction.com
