Medieval Horizons

Why the Middle Ages Matter

«A sparkling re-evalutation of the Middle Ages ... An eye-opening book that challenges our preconceptions and prejudices about the past—Mail on Sunday

Ian Mortimer is a wonderfully readable writerDaily Mail

Medieval Horizons doesn't set out to be a comprehensive survey of medieval England, but rather challenges us to rethink the Middle Ages and its social, cultural and intellectual innovations. Mortimer is a compelling advocate for our medieval inheritance. He is right that we should be proud of it The Times

In this razor-sharp book, Mortimer argues the case for the wonder of the Middle Ages with rigour, verve and, above all, evidenceSpectator

[A] spirited defence of the era ... Compelling stuff from one of the leading experts on the subjects—History Revealed

The word 'medieval' has become synonymous with 'backwards, ignorant, violent and superstitious.' But here Mortimer reminds us that our modern world is not the result of the technological developments of the past few centuries. Instead, our cultural, personal, social and environmental identities were forged in the medieval period. By shedding light on the important developments made from the first millennium to 1600, Mortimer asks us to redraw our understanding of the pastJanina Ramirez, Sunday Times-bestselling author of Femina

Provocative and refreshing. Medieval Horizons overturns many myths about the Middle Ages, showing that far from an era of stagnation, it was a period of profound change which has shaped today's world—Seb Falk, author of The Light Ages

Superb ... Mortimer allows us to make wonderfully compelling connections with our forebears—Guardian on The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England

His aim, triumphantly achieved, is to engage our sympathies with people whose similarities to us are as fascinating as their differences—Sunday Telegraph on The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England

Perhaps the most enjoyable history book I've read all year—Independent on The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England

The endlessly inventive Ian Mortimer is the most remarkable medieval historian of our time—The Times on The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England
