Most historians agree that the Carolingian Age, from the 8th to the 10th centuries AD, represented one of the most important turning points in European history. The adoption of the stirrup and subsequently of early versions of the high-framed war saddle, plus the pressure of rival and essentially non-western European cultures, combined to give birth to what are popularly regarded as mediaeval European styles of warfare. This text explores the organization and history of the Carolingian Empire during the age of one of history's most romanticized and heroic figures - Charlemagne.

"This book deals with the heyday of Frankish rule in Europe, but it does not claim to be a complete history of that rule. Its precise object is to render an account of the attempt to give an inner unity and solidity to the newly founded Frankish state. The prospects for the success of this attempt depended on two things: the formation of a class of officials to make centralized government possible; and the force of an idea, the idea of the Christian Empire, to justify the exercise of power." [Preface].

This book examines the important continuing discussion about the rebirth of urbanism in Carolingian Europe. Drawing upon new archaeological evidence from southern and northern Europe, Richard Hodges looks at the end of towns in Roman antiquity, the phenomenon of the Dark Age emporium, and the hotly disputed mechanisms which led to the inception of market towns during the age of Charlemagne. Much use is made, in particular, of recently excavated evidence from the Mediterranean, as well as from England. Towns and Trade in the Age of Charlemagne is an accessible introduction to a crucial debate about urban continuity or discontinuity during the Dark Ages, which has been running throughout the twentieth century. It is an essential guide for all students of the archaeology and history of the period.

One of the noblest possessions of the Roman Empire was the province of ancient Gaul. Much blood and treasure had been expended in its conquest; infinite wisdom, moderation, and vigour had been displayed in the means taken to attach it to the dominion of the Caesars; and the passing of several centuries had strongly cemented the union, and incorporated the conquered with their conquerors. Unwieldy bulk, enfeebling luxury, intestine divisions, and universal corruption soon, however, began to draw down the impending destruction upon the head of the imperial city. Attack after attack, invasion following invasion, left her still weaker under each succeeding monarch; province after province was wrested from her sway, till at length Odoacer, chief of the Scyrri, raised his standard in Italy; Romulus Augustulus yielded the empty symbols of an authority he did not possess; and the Roman Empire was no more...
