East and West in Conflict


The era of the crusades is one of the most turbulent, fascinating, and significant periods of world history. I the early second millenium, the struggle for posession of the city of Jerusalem polarised the Eastern and western worlds, creating a situation that appears strangely familiar more than 900 years later.

The Crusades

  • Damien Fegan tells the story of this world-changing epoch, providing a chronological history of the Crusades and background information of the cultures and personalities involved.

    Extensive use of historical reconstructions gives the story the immediacy of a daily newspaper. 

    Exercises, quizzes, maps, and primary resources are combined to provide the basis for assesments, classroom discussions or research projects.
