Product Description
On the heels of the agricultural revolution and various other political and even cllimactic factors came a burst of urban growth across Western Europe. Starting with the wool industry in Flanders (modern Belgium) it spread to France, Germany, and England. This lesson looks at the process of how towns revived after 1100 and their long-term political, economic, social, and religious effects. I consider this one of the most important events and processes in history, showing how historical events piggy-back on one another rather than existing in their own isolated vacuums. Therefore, I typically refer to it when beginning later units such as the Reformation and French Revolution.

Highlights of this Powerpoint include picture essays on the medieval wool industry, medieval Carcassonne, and medieval universities.

This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or integrated into your other lectures. There are also extensive pictures with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and the author’s own research notes which contain lots of details and interesting trivia to spice up your class.
