 What is European cultural history? Think food. Think music. Think language. Think religious identity. Think royalty. Think explorers. Think philosophy. Think literature. You begin to get the idea! Yes there will be some dates to learn, but we will be spending most of the time with the stories of the people whose lives are rooted in Europe.
