Charlemagne - a good academic history,

Charlemagne: The Formation of a European Identity
This is a fascinating academic history, going back to the primary sources and investigating why the documents were produced. It is not a popular history for the general reader - knowledge of the period is assumed.
But as a way of understanding what the business of history is about and why the 'facts' in popular histories are subject to so much interpretation, it is highly recommended.
