Hm. Well, I missed Carnival of History #1, but thanks to Glenn Reynolds, I've been led to #2. As a medievalist (at least I'm minoring in it with an MA thesis pending...yeah, a bit different), I found Hugo Holbling's review of Inventing the Middle Ages by Norman F. Cantor very interesting. I've not read the book, but based on Holbling's review, I may have to pick it up. There's much more to dig into, and I intend to do just that. In short, these History Carnivals have something for everyone.
