The Making of Europe: Conquest, Colonization and Cultural Change 950 - 1350

Penguin Adult, 1994 - 432 pages

This expansion also saw the English colonization in the Celtic world, German immigration into much of Eastern Europe, the reconquest of Spain and Sicily, as well as the introduction of Christianity to Bohemia, Hungary, Poland and Scandinavia.
