Legacy of the Roman Empire and Middle Ages in the West

Good lecture notes, with lots of maps and pictures, for that difficult time from the fall of the Roman empire through the Middle Ages, from a set of lecture notes from Prof. Robert W. Brown at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.

I encourage you to read through this material for added understanding, or if you’re having any difficulty.  Or, you may want to just browse the maps and illustrations.  One reason I like this set of notes is that it tells a cogent and coherent narrative of what happened and why.  In contrast to the text, Brown answers those questions you keep asking yourself as you read, “Why in the world did that guy do that?”
