Item description for Atlas of Medieval Europe by Angus Konstam...
The image of armored knights and elaborate castles is put into its true historic perspective with Atlas of Medieval Europe. The centuries-long historic era is traced from its stagnant origins in the Dark Ages, through the spread of religion, the Norman conquest, and the Crusades, to the development of towns, trade, science, and art that gave birth to the Renaissance. The course of the medieval period is divided by century and theme, detailing the evolution of the continent and constant influences such as war and religion. Unique maps illustrate the geography of battlegrounds, trade centers and routes, and empire territories, while a continuous timeline highlights key events and people. Atlas of Medieval Europe is rounded out by special studies which highlight subjects in the political, military and cultural arenas, and is illustrated by a wealth of photographs and contemporary paintings.

This is an attractive and interesting summary of the middle ages. But it has very few maps and those it has are not very detailed. Not really a serious atlas.
