Today's offering is somewhat intellectual, but even if you just scroll through and look at the maps, you will have a much clearer picture of medieval Europe, how it was organized politically and how our current map of Europe evolved.

The second link, also on the same site, covers the history of philosophy from the Greeks on, with a considerable amount of information about medieval and Renaissance philosophical ideas and movements.  These ideas would have influenced art, literature, and music, and so are of interest to artisans as well as those of us who want to really grasp how people thought and lived in period.

Two Interesting Links from www.fresian.com

Note:  The Proceedings of the Friesian School, Fourth Series, which produced these pages, is  a "non-peer-reviewed electronic journal and archive of philosophy" based on the ideas of Leonard Nelson.
