"The breath of reading is astounding, the knowledge displayed is awe-inspiring and the attention quietly given to critical theory and the postmodern questioning of evidence is both careful and sincere."--"The Daily Telegraph "(UK) "A superlative work of historical scholarship."--"Literary Review "(UK) A unique and enlightening look at Europe's so-called Dark Ages; the second volume in the Penguin History of Europe Defying the conventional Dark Ages view of European history between A.D. 400 and 1000, award-winning historian Chris Wickham presents "The Inheritance of Rome," a work of remarkable scope and rigorous yet accessible scholarship. Drawing on a wealth of new material and featuring a thoughtful synthesis of historical and archaeological approaches, Wickham agues that these centuries were critical in the formulation of European identity. From Ireland to Constantinople, the Baltic to the Mediterranean, the narrative constructs a vivid portrait of the vast and varied world of Goths, Franks, Vandals, Arabs, Saxons, and Vikings. Groundbreaking and full of fascinating revelations, "The Inheritance of Rome" offers a fresh understanding of the crucible in which Europe would ultimately be created."

I read about 20% of this Kindle book but it is too much like a textbook when it's supposed to be for a general audience.

I am not sure I can continue to take this book seriously after this egregious error of "commoner" - yikes!
