    the intro says that period was the 5 th thru the 15 th century, I assumed the period was around 12th- 15 th centuries. The book wanders a bit,no structure to it. Moreover most of it shows dates in 14-15th centuries,and I would say it deals 85% withFrance,and particularly Paris,one of the biggest cities of its time. Thus life for average citizen,living in a smaller town,is not illuminated. all in all worth about $1.99, like mostBookbub titles
