The Crusades: Europe was nearing the peak of the High Middle Ages in the late eleventh century. A growing population supported not only rapid expansion of arable land, but the growth of cities that in turn fostered trade and the arts.

The magazine is richly illustrated with maps, diagrams, weapons, and images of people and events. [Forum]
