The Chronicon of Thietmar of Merseburg --translated here for the first time in its entirety--is one of the most important sources for the history of the 10th and early-11th centuries, and especially of the Ottoman Empire. Thietmar is arguably the most important witness to the early history of Poland, and his detailed descriptions of Slavic folklore are the earliest on record. He offers striking portraits of his contemporaries, revealing opinions from politics to women's fashion.
David A. Warner is Associate Professor of History at the Rhode Island School of Design.
