Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Pictures....Wrong Dates Though the additional of pictures and timelines are awesome, many of the dates seem to be incorrect when comparing to multiple other books. For example: Gregory the great died in 604, but is listed as 640. Many examples of this throughout. Use the book for a rough history and some great pics, but don't use it for academic purposes are specific dates.
