No other period in history stirs our imaginations like the Middle Ages. It is an era cloaked in mystery, a time when noblemen and priors, master builders and monks were the order of the day and simple peasant folk struggled to survive, with plagues, famines and witch burning commonplace. International best-selling author Ken Follett (The Pillars of the Earth) presents two dramatic historical documentaries: Great Women of the Middle Ages sees Follett explore the lives of three women whose resolve, intelligence and bravery helped shape history, while in The Black Death, Follett examines how the devastating Bubonic Plague epidemic ultimately led to radical changes in Europe.
