The Story of Civilization Volume 2: The Medieval World (Dramatized Audiobook)

(3 reviews) Write a Review

Children should not just read about history; they should live it. In The Story of Civilization, the ancient stories that have shaped humanity come alive like never before. Author Phillip Campbell uses his historical expertise and storytelling ability together in tandem to present the content in a fresh and thrilling way.  

The Story of Civilization reflects a new emphasis in presenting the history of the world as a thrilling and compelling narrative. Within each chapter, children will encounter short stories that place them directly in the shoes of historical figures, both famous and ordinary, as they live through legendary battles and invasions, philosophical debates, the construction of architectural wonders, the discovery of new inventions and sciences, and the exploration of the world. 

Volume II: The Medieval World continues the journey, picking up where Volume I left off just after the conversion of Emperor Constantine. Children will watch the seeds of Christendom being planted in the soil of Europe thanks to colossal figures like Sts. Ambrose, Patrick, and Benedict. The wonder of the Medieval world comes alive with brilliant tales of knights, crusaders, castles, and inventions.

Dramatized Audio Book

Talented voice actor and audiobook producer Kevin Gallagher returns to bring children the history of the world in this riveting reading of The Story of Civilization: The Medieval World. This follows his immensely popular reading of Volume I: The Ancient World, as well as both volumes of TAN’s The Story of the Bible. Your children will be transported back in time through the sound effects, music, and voice acting that complement the reading of the text.

Whether looking for entertainment on a long road trip, enhancing the experience with the text, or catering to the needs of a child with a reading disability, this audio dramatization will open up a new world of adventure for kids of all ages.

    My 4-year-old loves this history series, and listens attentively anytime we play it in the car. He also loves listening to the chapter books as I read them aloud. Thank you for the engaging, relevant, detailed, and interesting history material!

    My children all love The Story of Civilization. The dramatization really engages them with the story. It is a treat to hear them talk about historical events and people in the same way as they would an exciting, well loved novel. This is one school subject that doesnt feel like school to them!
