Millennium: The End of the World and the Forging of Christendom

Hay Festival 2010, 
A stunning, panoramic account of the two centuries on either side of the apocalyptic year 1000: the age of Canute, William the Conqueror and Pope Gregory VII; of Vikings, monks and serfs; of the earliest castles and the invention of knighthood; and of the primal conflict between church and state.
