Brian Fagan examines the dominant climate event of the last millenium--the 500 year Little Ice Age--and shows how it affected major episodes of European history. This is the story of the turbulent, unpredictable and often very cold years of modern European history, how climate altered historical events, and what they mean in the context of today's global warming.
