EUROPE, BAGHDAD, AND THE
EMPIRES OF A.D. 800
As of August 2021, an audiobook of Becoming Charlemagne is available!
Tantor Media, a leader in audiobooks, developed this engaging new version of my 2006 narrative history of Charlemagne's world-changing coronation, which takes readers—and now listeners— on the harrowing journeys of diplomats from northern Europe to Baghdad and Byzantium during an era of rising empires.
I'm thrilled by Tantor's choice of narrators: classically trained actor, BBC radio presenter, and Economist podcaster James Cameron Stewart, who brings an air of intelligence to his reading, and the right subtle touch of British wryness.
