Publisher Comments:

Well-written, loaded with information, and with a rich assortment of illustrations, each Discoveries "RM" volume is a look at one facet of art, archaeology, music, history, philosophy, popular culture, science, or nature. These innovatively designed, affordably priced, compact paperbacks bring ideas to life and amplify our understanding of civilization in a new way.

Synopsis:

The lofty spires of Gothic cathedrals and massive fortifications of magnificent castles represent the pinnacle of building achievement in medieval western Europe. Learn how the era's ingenious new tools and techniques helped to create not only these extravagant monuments but also bridges, houses, and city walls. In this book, the story of the birth of the building trades-and the changing society it reflected-gains an exciting new dimension.
