"Aimed at college students and interested general readers, this reference presents a wealth of examples illustrating the impact of science and technology on daily life in medieval Europe. Wigelsworth begins with an overview of the era, followed by a chronology. The main part of the volume is organized into nine chapters dealing with general themes (agriculture, transportation, medicine, etc.). Each of these is further divided into concise entries on individual topics (the crop system, road construction, and childbirth, for example). The volume concludes with a glossary and some suggestions for further reading."
