The Cambridge Medieval History, Volume 02, The Rise of the Saracens and the Foundation of the Western Empire
The present work is intended as a comprehensive account of medieval times, drawn up on the same lines as The Cambridge Modern History but with a few improvements of detail suggested by experience. It is intended partly for the general reader, as a clear and, as far as possible, interesting narrative; partly for the student, as a summary of ascertained facts, with indications (not discussions) of disputed points; partly as a book of reference, containing all that can reasonably be required in a comprehensive work of general history. (Summary by From the General Preface)

I'll be glad to MC this. The MW is up.

I hate to say this after the considerable effort you've made filling out the author data, but we don't list that many names in the author fields. In the first volume and in the Cambridge Modern series we've listed authors in the section titles and we can also list their names as keywords. We could use "Various" or the names of editors in the author fields. It's not clear whether Bury as planner of the series should be listed as author. We don't need to include any author name in the filename. The first field is already long and specific.

I've discretely abbreviated the forum title in order to fit my MC tag within the field limit. :roll:

Thankyou Michael! The MW is ready.

Fear not, the authors thing is just to make all the writers searchable (thought not visible) in the database like in this project. Though when I look at the authors at the moment, it looks like you might have removed them all?
