    The Early Middle Ages-the years from A.D. 650 to 1000-were crucial to Europe's future social and political development. These 24 lectures trace a journey from Scandinavia across northern and central Europe to the farthest reaches of the Byzantine and Islamic empires, providing an exciting new look an era often simply called the "Dark Ages."

    Would you try another book from The Great Courses and/or Professor Philip Daileader?

    No I would not.


    Would you recommend The Early Middle Ages to your friends? Why or why not?

    No I would not.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The lecturer sounded like he had a bad head cold. It was downright gross to listen to.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Early Middle Ages?

    I would hire a different reader/lecturer.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a topic of history I love and have studied a lot. I was really excited to listen to these lectures. Professor Daileader got a lot of information wrong. His focus was all over the place. He omitted many interesting topics in the era, got others wrong, and managed to make boring what he did talk about. To top it all off he sounded like he had a head cold, or some sort of nervous tic involving saliva. It was literally disgusting to listen to him at times. I can not recommend this course or any others he does. There are way better alternatives on audible!
